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?
I’m beat after a nice dinner with my crew Dan and JR. Over and out.
