Since our last post, Tom, Joe and Pete have travelled from South Dakota to Ottomuwa, Iowa. They’ve battled high heat, high winds and heavy traffic during this leg of their journey. Quite an impressive journey so far and they still have a long way to go before reaching Florida. To put some perspective on their trip – the Tour de France started on June 30th, the same day our riders started their trip. The Tour lasts 21 days and covers 2200 miles. Tom, Joe and Pete will ride approximately 2100 miles in that same time period. Even more impressive is the fact their total trip will be closer to 3300 miles and they are carrying personal gear and spare equipment.
Stay tuned for more updates!
P.S. Thank you to Jan Clark for relaying information from the riders.
