The ride into a rest day is a giddy-happy-yippie-wow, look where we are kind of day. Today was no different as the riders left the hotel for a day of cycling in perfect weather.
Our first SAG stop this morning was in Chester, the geographic center of Illinois. There is a monument built in a beautiful little park in Chester which sits on the side of the road next to a huge grain silo.
After miles more cycling and another relaxed SAG under a tree, the group headed out for the last 20 miles into Champaign, hometown of our on-road mechanic, Peyton Kaiser. Peyton was welcomed home today by his family and friends, but his ride is not over. After a day off, it’s back on the road to Boston for everyone.
