Today, the Jettriders left the comforts of the Van Houten house to continue our journey to Point Pleasant, NJ. The team was happy to have Jack Van Houten join us for today’s ride. Today was also Julianne’s first full day as a Jettrider.

5 minutes into our 75 mile ride, Delaney got her first flat tire of the trip. With the help of Dan and Julianne the tire was fixed and the riders continued. Lunch was provided by Carol and Sue of the Peoples Presbyterian  Church in Milan. Unfortunately, Delaney’s bad luck continued and she got another flat tire later in the afternoon.

The team arrived in Temperance, Michigan around 3pm. After Mr. Van Houten picked Jack up, the rest of the team went to the local YMCA which provided showers and dinner. After supper, the team went to a big Cabela’s in Dundee to shop and look at the stuffed animals. After an icecream at McDonalds, the team went back to the church to sleep and rest up for the next day.
