Today we took off from Vermillion, OH heading for North Royalton, OH with an experienced cyclist named Bud. Sadly, we were one man short. Jack Van Houten left last night for his cross country trip. Rumor has it that his team is running about 300 miles! He will return soon…

Within an hour the temperature rose about ten degrees. As the day dragged on the temperature rose drastically. We only experienced a few large hills near the end. At one of the breaks Colby tried popping a wheel in the lot and ended up on his rear. He walked away with a devastating arm injury. No need to worry, he is okay. Megan had two flat tires within an hour. The cause was unknown….bum bum bahhh
Around 2:00, we arrived in North Royalton, OH at the Dumm’s. We were greeted with a pool, slip-n-slide, and food!  We spent the night swimming, and playing with the Dumm’s kids and friends. The temperature drastically dropped in the afternoon and made up for the crucial temperature during the day.
