Day 39 Chanute to Eureka

Many exciting things happened today in Kansas. It rained. There was one hill. Ellen took a wrong turn and lost her sunglasses in a creek. I nearly fell off my bike on a railway ctossing as well as nearly hitting a turtle. Greg rescued 3 turtles. We had a pie free Sunday lunch. The faster end of the group decided to do a 100 mile day today to maintain their testosterone levels ( said David )
We are passing through the Flint Hills which is the largest area of open grazing cattle land in the USA. We have a long 73 mile day tomorrow and the temperature will be in the high nineties with a headwind. So its early to bed with a 6AM start to try get az much done before the hottest paft of the day.
Miles Today     62
Total              1864

  1. Rob,
    Love the Blog. Especially the observations regarding the testosterone levels of those elite centurions. I'm sure they will be pumped up enough to carry your group gear for the next there or four days. With enough encouragement to them you may get away with lightening your load for the rest of the trip! Happy pedaling!
