What a day!

After a balanced breakfast from Our Saviors Lutheran, the team set out to ride nearly a century. We had 90 degree weather and sunny skies which was a change from our previous days. Teams battled the boredom of Minnesota plains by playing a word game called “Contact” and telling riddles.

About 80 miles into our ride we passed by the tri-state marker indicating the border between Iowa, South Dakota and Minnesota.

We arrived in Sioux Falls at Zion Lutheran Church around 5:00. Some team members visited bike shops while others enjoyed the snacks and food provided by the pastor. Jordan’s Aunt Lisa came by and brought us some food and also did some of the team’s laundry.

Eamon and Jamie went to Panera to pick up leftover bagels and ended up talking to the manager at a nearby Cici’s Pizza. The manager, Neil, was very excited to provide the entire team with unlimited trips through the buffet. We left Cici’s stuffed with pizza and cinnamon rolls.

    I see you are riding to Mitchell, S.D. today. Home of the Corn Palace. Since they change the outside every year, could somebody take a picture of it?
    Have a good ride through South Dakota. It is such an interesting state. Marci (Tracey’s mom)
