Day 3 Update

Texted in from Chris:

Day 3 went very good!! We are now in Coffeeville, Alabama at a state park. It was a little shorter of a day, it will be a good rest day! I took another wrong turn today but it saved us about 8 miles, but we had to risk our lives with a lot of logging trucks!!! 😳

Day 3 is done and it was another successful day for Mull Bro’s and Co. They traveled from Perdue Hill, Alabama to Coffeeville, Alabama. Ken drove Chris from the campsite to the site where they left off yesterday, but Andy was feeling frisky and decided to get in an extra 22 miles and ride from the campsite to the drop-off site and then start his route from there. Today Chris rode a total of 47 miles, and Andy rode 69. They had a total elevation of roughly 2300 and 3200 ft, respectively.🚴🏻‍♂️💪🏼 The guys have noticed that Alabama has beautiful 2.5 foot bike lanes. However, for some reason Alabama hates cyclists because they thought it would be a great idea to put rumble strips right in the middle of them!🙄 They took a wrong turn and came across some very big, very fast logging trucks, but were pleasantly surprised how well the truckers shared the road with them; even with the massive wind gusts that accompanies a logging truck going 60+ mph!
They are settling into the camping life, despite a couple of incidents with fire ants, CBD lotion, washing and drying by hand, and cheap hangers.⛺️ One of my favorite messages I received from Andy today was, “ Terrible reception. I feel like I’m always in the middle of the woods. Apparently, people in the middle of the woods don’t need good reception.”🏕😂❤️

All of these miles from the Gulf of Mexico to the shores of Lake Erie are not just for Andy and Chris' health. They are raising money for prostate cancer awareness. Use this donate button below to help Andy and Chris with their goals raising awareness. Every penny helps. Thank you.
