Making Our Way to Mitchell

Greetings to all our loyal readers,
Today saw the team make a 73 mile ride from the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Mitchell, South Dakota. The day was made fairly relaxed by a helpful tail wind. We rode through many interesting towns on our way to the Mitchell Christian School.
The team had a very interesting visit to Avera Queen of Peace cancer center, where we learned a great deal about the treatment of different types of cancer through chemotherapy and radiation. The town of Mitchell is also home to the Corn Palace, which is a one of a kind tourist attraction that some of the riders visited. Over one ton of nails, staples, and wire are used to fasten the corn and grasses to the walls!
The team also received generous food donations from Culver’s, Corona Village and the cancer center. ¬†We enjoyed a great meal and also experienced downtown Mitchell. Tomorrow we head to Chamberlain, South Dakota, including a 5 AM wake up to beat the heat!

Until then, thanks for everything!

The Illini 4000
