The morning is definitely the best time to ride. I rode through the Quivira National Wildlife Refuge where I learned about birds, Coronado's search for the golden city, and all the different grasses of the prairie.
I ran into a bunch of other bikers when I stopped at the Nickerson Kwik Stop. 2 couples on tandems, a couple headed east, and a brother and sister out for a 40+ mile loop.
With 30 miles left in my day, I am taking a break from the heat and drinking some water.
