The Tour Departs from Stevens Point
Wednesday was another century day on the bike as the Tour departed Stevens Point following a local tree dedication. We rolled along, meandering through the big woods and back into the prairies and farm land approaching Green Bay.
We Break for Trains
We discovered that only way to stop this dedicated bunch of riders is run a train in front of them. The train in the picture stopped our group three times as we rode through Green Bay and gave us a chance to catch our breath.
Dedication at Lambeau
We enjoyed our evening at Lambeau Field after a touching tree dedication for a family who recently suffered a tragedy. We made sure to give the new planting a fresh drink of water before we left as it is getting a bit dry around here. Thursday’s ride is slightly shorter at 57 miles to Door County. See you on the road!
