We're all trying to beat the heat the last days so we have been waking up early. For me this meant waking up at 4:55 the last two days and going to bed around 9 or 10. Uggh.

This means riding as we see the sun rise.

We turned before we got to David City, but I thought I at least need a picture with the sign!

Here is a video I took along the way. Make sure you look at the wind on the grasses that we had to bike INTO.

I love my bike! It has handled well and has been a good investment that I will be able to use for a long time. However while cleaning it on Thursday after the wet morning I realized there were cracks in the rim by the spokes on the rear drive side. Even thought I have ridden the bike a lot, the wheel is still new and should be able to be replaced under warranty. The colors even match the Sea to Sea Jersey!

When I (along with Lynn Verros; we rode together) arrived at camp I went and cooled off and relaxed in the waterpark.

Brent was tired when we got to camp, along with everyone else. By the end of the week we are all tired so the practice of a day of rest every seven days is great.

Here is a time lapse of people milling around camp. It didn't turn out to great but you might find it interesting.
