This morning we left from the Dumm’s around 8:00 after a delicious breakfast spread. Colby missed the only turn and traveled multiple miles down a hilly road. Soon Colby was called and reached the group.

The scenery was breathtaking and the trails were amazing. The first part was a very scenic steep downhill. Surprisingly we met up with the City Manager of Canal Fulton, Mark Cozy, that we rode with in the previous years. He brought us to Oser’s Ice Cream Shop that had over 100 flavors! We met a boy with Duchenne named Ben. He was ecstatic when we presented him with his Kindle Fire! After our ice cream we met up with the press and then took off. Ben rode in the duet and his brother Isaiah tagged along. Ben and the JettRiders departed at the bike shop where we were greeted by the owner. Before we left, Megan got a flat. We are spending the night at a Recreation Center, and for dinner, Bob Evans! The total mileage was 62 miles.
