First stop was in Monticello to get "GUed up" and refueled.
Next stop was a quick PB&J lunch in Greenville, FL - hometown of Ray Charles.
After lunch the cyclists continued down Hwy 90 where they were sprayed by a pesticide truck and passed by a few stinky semi-trucks (filled with chickens). After a long, but interesting, 25 miles the riders had a quick break. Along a came a storm cloud and we experienced a quick heavy downpour, huddled uncover and were off again shortly.
The last segment of the ride included one minor incident with a few scuffed elbows, but all were OKAY. We ended the day's route safe and sound in Live Oak, FL.
Enjoyed a ride happy hour - some were even pampered by massage therapist, Jason Fox, and finished the night with dinner at Dixie's Grille.
Today we received this meaningful message from a friend, "...I KNOW that Roger smiles, knowing that his kind spirit and courage lives within all who knew him, and many who did not, but believe in making the world a more safe place for riders." Thanks for the thoughtful words Ann.
