110 miles on a HOT, sunny July Day in Iowa. Not a lot of pics today. It was a long, hard ride. But here's what I do have. Also, my Strava report is incomplete as well, as my phone died on route.
|We woke up to a foggy dawn. Warm and muggy.|
|Riders disappear into the mist.|
|Riders who are merely crazy stay left, those that are certifiable go right for an extra 24 miles of hilly fun!|
|"Where are you from?"|
|This was a great idea! I just wish the map didn't look like a 2nd grader painted it on that wall.|
|Elk Horn, IA. There are a number of small towns that were flying the Danish flag in this area. Not too many Norwegians though. Hmmm.|
|Former (and future) teammate Lisa (left in glasses) and her family hosted a water stop for the team on the Karras Loop. I had the privilege to ride the Loop with Sue (right).|
