After we did we packed our lunch and snacks. I was on sweep this morning so Harold and Peter had to wait for me. It started to pour rain. Funny it actually made the cleanup faster. After a break in the rain we headed out.
It started to pour shortly after and rained for most of the ride. Harold is wringing out his gloves at the first sag stop.
They had donuts as soon as we came in.
They also had coffee and cookies, blueberries and all sorts of goodies. It was hard to get back on the bikes after that. It was cold and my legs felt like lead.
We kept our spirits high despite the rain.
We went right along Lake Michigan. I'm sure if it wasn't pouring rain it would have been even better.
We took a little detour and crossed the river on the chain ferry. It was a hand crank ferry.
A chain crossed the river and it picked it up. You had to crank the handle and it brought you across.
It was a fun distraction to a wet day.
It just started to dry up in the last 10 miles. I saw a nice pickup on they way. We made good time despite the weather and my knee. I rode most of the day pushing with my right leg. All the while trying not to wreck my good leg.
Harold and Peter pulled me into holland. By then it was dry. Another longer day then expected. Well look who showed up.
John and grace, Carries sister showed up today. We had a nice time touring around town.
