Day 18

Home 2.0! Faith Lutheran Church made us a great warm breakfast, then we headed out an hour later than normal. It was so great to sleep in an extra hour, but most of us are in the habit of waking up at 5:45 anyways. The day’s ride was dedicated to Pat’s grandson (from the church) who is battling childhood cancer. Today we rode into Chicago, and it was only 30 miles. Despite us all grabbing our rain jackets, all we ended up with was some chilly mist and lots of puddles. Fortunately, the sun came out just as we were walking up to the Bean in Millennium Park. What a beautiful day to spend at home! Some people who are not from the suburbs/city stayed with I4K teammates.

Remember the itinerary for Friday:
Team leaves Buckingham Fountain at 8 am, and rides to Caldwell Woods Picnic Grove for a picnic with supporters at 11 am. Anyone who wants to help out with the picnic can sign up here. After the picnic, we’ll be having a 15 mile ride to Prospect Heights with supporters. The ride will end at the Prospect Heights Metra, for those who want to take a train back. Or they can just ride back. From there, the team will continue riding to Elgin for our stayover.

No ride Thursday; no blog post! Happy Thursday!

The sun came out brilliantly as our team rolled into Chicago!
