rest day 2…

rest day in dublin at the erikson household — warm showers, delicious food, comfy beds, and crossword puzzles!

thinking about the last couple of rides makes me realize just how much difference a day can make.  it is nearly impossible to make predictions about the number of flats we will get, how long rain clouds will follow us overhead, or what time we will arrive at our stayover location each day.  the day before our first ride, i asked sandy, an illini 4000 veteran, if she had any advice for me and the rest of the team.  i expected tips about bike maintenance or riding safety, but instead she told me "just be sure to keep and open mind."  now i see why this is true.

hopefully our day of rest will prepare us for the 100+ mile ride we will set out on tomorrow morning.
