Today was a ride of 282 miles from Birmingham, AL to Tunica, MS. The day started out in mild temps and cloudy cover.

Class one bikes left at 7:00 this morning.

As a previous Class one contestant, I cannot emphasize enough how tough these guys have it. Hats off to them all.

I rode with Bob again today and we were caught off guard with a short rain shower early in the morning.

Suited up and on the road. Before you knew it, the weather changed to a bright blue sky and very hot.

Had a great ride after that.

Then a deluge of rain!! Terrible conditions. However we continued on!

Made it in with all miles in time. Me and John Bartman enjoyed swapping stories of the day.

Still have a perfect score. Tomorrow we are off with a 243 mile journey to Arkaldelphia, Arkansas. The mayor, Scott Byrd, is a cannonball rider, and has arranged for a street party to welcome us in. How cool is that?

Iā€™m beat after a nice dinner with my crew Dan and JR. Over and out.

  1. Stay strong my friend! The light has to be getting bigger and brighter at the end of the tunnel. As always, have a safe trip and continued success to you all. Particularly Team Effort 9!
