Today we accomplished a major mile stone. We have now ridden 1000 miles (at least meaning this does not include missed turns, back tracts or other “bonus miles”.
Today most of the team members got an early start because yesterday we crossed over to the Central Time Zone. Because of the change, we all woke up early and just took off. The ride was easier than most of the other days so the length and heat was the biggest challenge.
The roads were well marked with the bike trail 76 signs so we didn’t miss any turns. The dog action was minimal and all the rest stops were setup before we arrived. We made one of our own rest stop at a convenience store to have a “Tasty Freeze”. It help us to complete the last 9 miles of the day.
Tonight we are staying at the First Baptist Church in Sebree KY. Not only are they providing a great place to sleep inside and a warm shower, they are also providing us with dinner. Come on 6:00 p.m.
Good Job, keep hydrated. Ruth
Congratulations on 1st 1,000 miles, Dave. What an accomplishment! I’ve enjoyed all your posts, but this one in particular, because it involves Sebree, KY. My maternal grandparents and great grandparents were from the Sebree and Slaughters, KY communities. As kids, we spent a lot of time on a beautiful and pretty good sized family farm there right alongside the north-south highway running through that area called the Pennyrile Parkway.
Stay safe and keep writing as I know you will keep riding!
So good to read all your entries! Warms my heart to hear about the acts of Christian love that have been given! Prayers continue, Maxine
Congrats on the 1000 miles. Look forward to seeing you in about 500 more. Keep up the good work.
Almost to Kansas
