Riding Through Day Two…

We made it to the end town of Emmetsburg this afternoon after a hot, albeit shorter, ride of about 40 miles.


Along the way we encountered skateboarders, a tandem bike made into a banana, and even a guy on a unicycle! Wowza! We spent most of the day drinking fruit shakes to take the edge off the heat, and bicycling through the bucolic Iowa scenery.

All in all it was a great riding day and tomorrow promises to be a scorcher of an 80-mile ride! So I guess I’ll be getting up early to try and beat as much of the heat as possible. And I”ll be giving a live online interview with the Des Moines Register so keep an eye out for that 🙂

Thanks for reading!
