I made it. All 309 miles. I'm still a little hard-pressed to wrap my head around it, but damn am I happy. Through blazing heat, past innumerable fields of corn and soybeans, roadkill, Mennonites, too many steep hills, beautiful landscapes, pouring rain, random air horn attacks, the always cheerful crew, one flat tire and an awesome bunch of riders.

I'm going to be typing up an actual ride journal over the next few days that'll describe it all in better detail. I just wanted to check in to say that I'm alive and well and surprisingly not very sore at all. I am so grateful to have been part of this extraordinary event and to have met this fabulous group of people. Maybe I'll do it again next year....
