Day 53: Gardiner, MT to Bozeman, MT

Today’s ride was dedicated to Mike’s neighbor, Mr. Guthrie. Mr. Guthrie is currently battling against his cancer diagnosis, and we kept him and his loved ones in our thoughts as we biked today.

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we didn’t ride the whole 80 miles today – instead we ended up doing some shuttling with our support vehicle and also got to eat a bunch of delicious donated food! We had homemade pizza, delicious burgers, sushi, and olive garden all donated to us by some really amazing people. Everybody is going to bed full and rested and ready for tomorrow!

We are staying at the Bozeman United Methodist Church this evening and are thankful for their numerous couches and in house (and warm!) showers! Montana is treating us really well so far and we are so thankful.

The shout-out today goes to Jonathan. Jonathan is an extremely safe rider who is amazing at communicating with cars to make sure that both the cars and the bikers are safe. Today he had a teammate take a spill and he took quick action to make sure the situation was safe and everyone was okay. He is a great and caring teammate that we are lucky to have around.
