Henrik is smiling now...

We talked to Henrik at 5:19 a.m. this morning and it was easy to see that the weary neck muscles where exacting a "stiff" toll on our lead rider's spirits. We encountered a much happier cyclist in the daylight near mile number 696 in the Middle Creek Wildlife preserve. Take a close look at the picture above and see if you can deduce the source of our rider's new found joy...

Henrik used a biycle inner tube to support his neck. You can see the tube as it goes across his chest the in crosses over itself on his back and then it goes up along the back of his neck and around his forehead. The tube takes the stress off of the muscles as it helps support to his head. The solution is working well and to quote Henrik "I'm not an engineer for nothing."

Henrik has not experienced Shermer Neck previously so this came as a bit of a suprise. Keep going man!
