Day 75

Hello world!

Day 75 has come to a close.

We had an “easy” 57 miles for the day and time was strangely moving fast but slow at the same time. I think it was the eagerness of having a bed to look forward to/staying in a boujee (meaning really nice in kid lingo) hotel, along with an amazing homemade meal from Sophie’s family in San Rafael!

It was funny to see kids from an organization biking across the country emerse themselves into normal society (the hotel) for more than 20 minutes like we’re used to (at gas stations, Walmart, etc). If I were people watching at the hotel and I saw our team walk through, I would’ve thought they’d come back from the dead because that’s kinda what we looked like… zombies !

Once everyone was back biking, Ryan’s parents came over to see us and treat us to ice cream!! Extremely nice of them and it was quite the treat.

We headed to the feast put on at Sophie’s house and we chatted, ate a lot… I mean A LOT and just relaxed. Twas enjoyable.

We ended the night with the long awaited “Phillies” which were individual awards given to each biker based on what we’ve all done this summer. My award was “Best Bike Twerker Award”, so I’m aightttt with it. Basically I just like to dance a lot on the bike, it helps pass the time and distract me during the tough days :)

I can’t believe we’ve made it to the last night before we cross the bridge. It seems like SO long ago that we were in New York awaiting for the summer of biking to start… 5/19/21. Wowza. It also seems like just yesterday that we were jammin out in Colorado while we were at Red Rocks.

This has been a heck of a ride. Come back for the season finale tomorrow.

See y’all at that damn bridge.

    What a memory you have made for yourself. I very proud to know such a such a tough, disciplined, and sweet young lady. I look forward to taking a normal bike ride with you on our bike paths and hearing all about this journey you have completed. You have written such a fun journal to read and I enjoyed every entry. See you back in Illinois and Hildy wags her tail to say Hi and you did a good job.
    Love
