We were trying to decide whether to take 1 day or 2 days of rest at home, then checked the weather forecast & decided on 2! This afternoon, as I write this, it is pouring rain. A good day to not ride. Even if it is warm, the other day a knowledgeable source confirmed our suspicions that you’re 2-3 times more likely to get flats when riding in the rain.
So, no ride updates today but we’d like to point out a few items for your attention:
1.) Please check out our “We Believe” page, if you haven’t already done so. If you enjoy reading our blog, please consider making a donation to Grand Rapids Community Foundation. You can donate online or via snail mail. Link: http://www.grfoundation.org
2.) We’re always looking for somewhere to spend the night along the route. We expect it to become more of a challenge as we get to less populous areas. If you live close to our proposed route or have a friend who lives near our route, please contact us. We love to visit friends & family along the way!
Tomorrow we ride! 🙂
P.S. For those of you viewing this blog on a mobile device, such as a iPhone, notice there is a little dash in the upper right-hand corner. If you touch that dash, a drop down menu will appear with the other pages, such as “Our Route”, “We Believe”. See below:
