In Wisconsin

Today we left Deerfield, Illinois and headed to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for a relatively short ride of 65 miles. After lots of rest in Chicago, the team finally got back on the normal routine. Today’s ride was not as easy as anticipated because of the hot weather. We decided to take the ride slow to take in all the scenery along the beautiful bike trails up to Wisconsin.
Tonight’s stayover was provided by the parents of Illini 4000 Alumnus Brad Topol. Mr. and Mrs. Topol welcomed the team with warm showers and delicious food. Some team members walked the short walk down to Lake Geneva to enjoy the beautiful sunset. The previous members of I4K explained to us that the ride “officially” started today after we left Illinois since we are heading away from family and toward San Francisco. We are all looking forward to the upcoming adventures, people, and experiences we will have in the post Illinois part of the trip.
