Day 36

Day 36 = halfway through the ride day-wise. Today was a glorious day of downhill… and no winds!  We left Cheyenne after oatmeal without brown sugar. Eric’s girlfriend’s grandpa Papa Bob was diagnosed with skin cancer this summer. Rather than being able to enjoy time in Michigan with family, he is going through treatment this summer. Today’s ride is dedicated to Papa Bob.

Chased by alpaca, we rode into Fort Collins, Colorado – our 12th state. We arrived at LifePointe Church ready for a rest day. In 36 days, we have only had 3 rest days. Fort Collins Club let us shower for free, too.

Due to unforeseen complications, our van is still in Cheyenne and will not be available until Tuesday afternoon. Because of this, we will be staying one extra day in Fort Collins – thank you LifePointe for being flexible! We will be camping in Chamber’s Lake Campground and Dumont Campground. Then we will arrive in Steamboat Springs as planned, back on schedule. No blog the next few days; see you on the bike for Day 39!

We have arrived in Colorado!
