We ride long days. 10 hours or so on the bikes every day and what we have seen has been amazing. I recommend this trip to everyone but it is exhausting. There have been times almost every day that one of us needs to stop so we can rest a little before continuing , which is usually in a gas station or some small cafe. I have discovered 5 hour Energy. This little bottle of god knows what has been a huge help staying awake on the road and would be my second recommendation of this post. It tastes bad, although the lemonade flavor wasn’t too bad but it really works and I never get jittery like having too much coffee.  Maybe they will hire me to be a spokesman?
