1) we saw the weather report calling for warm sunny weather and
2) we knew Todd White of Katy Bike Rental & Shuttle was going to be picking us up in Clinton around 12:30 (but we didn't want to leave in the dark)
So, off we rode at 7:30 am to get a head start on the day. The elevation map was a liar! We thought we'd be going downhill but WRONG!! It seemed like it was an endless uphill climb followed by another uphill climb.
As we rode toward Clinton we started humming the theme song from "Rocky." We actually pulled in at noon. Todd pulled in with the van and Kim was there with champagne! We were super tired, but super happy with our accomplishment PLUS the fact that we raised over $3,300 for the Asthma & Allergy Foundation. Todd took us to lunch at Kehde's in Sedalia, and Chuck hosted us all at Chandler Hill for dinner.
A BIG thanks to all who supported us in the ride. We're thankful for our health and are appreciative of the work the Asthma & Allergy Foundation does.
