Sunday, June 5

I handcycled 38 miles today, a few miles less than yesterday, as part of my continued training for the cycling book tour that begins June 25. I carb up the night before at dinner, then in the morning I start with about 18 ounces of water. Soon after beginning cycling I have half a sandwich on gluten free bread of almond butter and honey. In a couple of hours I have a second half sandwich of the same. Meanwhile I regularly drink water with a little electrolyte solution from my camelback strapped to my back through a tube always resting near my mouth for easy access. Yesterday I saw two other handcyclists on the trail. Today, none. But hundreds of regular cyclists going in both directions on the trail that varies in width from 8 to 12 feet. I anticipate averaging 40 miles a day once the tour starts, thus the need to build my endurance.

    You have, in so many ways, in so many years, kept on the track of civic participation, confrontation, and challenging the powers as be. If all of us, who believe in the truth, integrity, and the founding principles of this state and government of this country, we can achieve, in the political race for equality, dignity of the person, legal rights, etc., the true destiny of of this country.
