One more day.

In the past two days the team has left Oregon behind and moved into the southwestern part of Washington State where we are currently settled at the Emanuel Lutheran Church in Yelm, WA.

Today’s ride took the team from Castle Rock to Yelm, WA. The morning started with a French Toast breakfast in Castle Rock, the work of our masterful guest chef/rider Allen Tran. As we departed Castle Rock, the drizzle began to fall and continued through much of the morning. We stopped for lunch in Centralia where we enjoyed a fabulous PBJ lunch out of the back of the van and visited the bike shop and the library. With about 30 miles to cover following lunch many people took their time getting to Yelm stopping to cool off in a swimming hole where a rope swing hanging from a tree provided much entertainment. When we arrived in Yelm, Connie and Andrea prepared a fabulous meal of rice and grilled cheese putting our donated Panera bread from Portland to good use. After dinner the team was treated to ice cream at Dairy Queen thanks to a generous ice cream donation from Matt’s aunt. With less than 24 hours before we pull into Magnuson Park in Seattle most of the team is currently fast asleep in preparation of tomorrows ride. For those meeting us in Seattle tomorrow we’ll see you at the finish line!
