This had to be the easiest day of riding on the tour. We had one climb but it was so gradual it didn’t require much. I only got out of the large front sprocket for the final quarter mile of the climb. Then the rest of the ride was basically downhill with the wind to our backs all the way to Milford. We couldn’t have asked to a better day. We had a new segment rider (a person that joins the ride for a state or two) join us today. Hope she doesn’t get the wrong idea.
Milford is a small town with a nice park for camping. The only challenge faced here was the area lawn sprinkler came on about 15 minutes after we had setup our tent. We move the tent and dried it out before night fall.
Milford is also one of our package delivery points along the ride. At these points people can send a rider things like food, supplies, or things of encouragement to a rider. Today I received one from my friends from the Houston MS office. It was a total surprise and was much appreciated and very heart felt. Thanks so much.
