Rollin’ through Rockville

Our ride from Indianapolis to Rockville, dedicated to Yoon Taek Lim, a family friend of our rider Je, who passed away from gastric cancer, was a little bit different from a normal ride because today we had special guests; Pastor Dave and two members of the United Methodist Church in Rockville-Ed and Steve. They joined us at mile 31 and showed us the way to Rockville. Unfortunately, some riders got stuck in the rain today. However, with Steve hosting us for dinner and a pool party, we all were ecstatic. It was refreshing to take a dip after 62 miles of riding instead of showering. After dinner, Randy, a member of the United Methodist Church, introduced us to Love Bags–goody bags filled with snacks and drinks for our trip. Special thanks to Steve’s family for a fantastic dinner and to the United Methodist Church of Rockville for giving us a place to sleep tonight and plenty to eat! One more thing which made us happy today was that some of our directors-Conner, Alex, and Ashley- came over to Rockville and will stay over with us tonight! We are very excited to ride into Champaign tomorrow and get back to some more familiar scenery in Illinois!!
