Out of water
Due to the amount of climbing and the power bars I was consuming I soon ran out of water and started to feel very tired. I knew if I could find some fresh water I would be able to make it to the summit, so I told Brian to ride ahead and wait at the nearest water stop. About 2o mins later I came around the corner to find Brian at a curve in the road with a concrete low wall next to a small waterfall. My prayers had been answered and I was overjoyed at the chance to refill my 2ltr camelbak for a much needed drink. The ice cold mountain water tasted great and gave me the boost I needed to make it to the summit. Pictured above is one very happy cyclist at the water fall.
