Hello from East Pine Street as I sit in my beetle eating some almond scone thing and a Starbucks coffee. Why not Break Espresso? This is special day, I go to one of my special passes to ride my bike and I have a Starbucks card just itching to serve me smooth brew and blue berry scones. The only hang up is that they do not have blue berry scones here … boooooo! Anyway lets look at the positives.
Today I go to Fletcher Pass (See Map). This is a 50 miler that starts in Lincoln and ends in Lincoln. My plan is to ride up Rte 200 to the Fletcher Pass Road (I dont know what it is called). Then I will take the pass and go down to Wilborne before turning right on the Stemple Pass Road (Dirt). It is my hope I dont run into excessive snow and the pass is open. This all dirt pass will be steeper and end by a downhill dirt road to Lincoln.
This is all uncharted terratory and it is my hope that the plan goes off without a hitch. if it does not I will trace my route back to Lincoln. I will not travel further towards Helena than Wilborne. As soon as I get some air in my car tire (it is flat) I am outta here. have a good day everyone. Climb higer faster stronger!
