Hello from Burlington, IA.
The ride today was tough, very tough.
Coming out Rock Island we were in great spirits, but a strong south wind started to zap some of our energy pretty early on. We also discovered the maps we have aren't 100% correct........Despite the rough day, we all finished strong, no injuries.
The countryside had been great and met some very nice people, including our hosts Chuck and Julie. They treated us to a great dinner which was much appreciated after a hard day.
Shorter miles tomorrow. We are going to bed EARLY.
