Day 4 Update

Texted in from Chris:

We got off to an early start on day 4 out of Coffeville, AL, on the road at 5:15 AM, trying to beat the heat. Our goal was to make it to Linden, AL (50 miles) if I felt good, try to make it more north. Well, we ended up going to Saltwell, AL (71 miles). Felt pretty good for the 50 miles BUT the next 21 miles were a little tough on me. It was very pleasant the first 35 miles with the temperature in the upper 60's, but it soon reached 93 degrees by the end of the ride!!! 😅😅😅. Maybe should have stopped in Linden, AL, but all is good. 

Fighting an upset stomach for the last 3 days, I believe I need to find the right diet and the right amount. I probably have overloaded my stomach with a lot of good stuff which my body is not used to!!! 😂😂😂

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers!!! They are working!!!

Day 4 came and went without a hitch! They traveled from Coffeeville, Alabama to Demopolis, Alabama. Chris rode a total of 71 miles, and Andy rode 77 because he rode some extra miles to the campsite. They had a total elevation of roughly 3150 and 3450 ft, respectively. Ken provided much needed support and rocket fuel to the riders and is a pro at managing the trip!🚴🏻‍♂️💪🏼
If you watched the live video Andy posted earlier, you were able to get an exclusive look at the behind the scenes and and a glimpse into their living arrangements inside, (and outside) of Fat Albert, the mighty Winnebago!⛺️
They were able to get some laundry done today and had their first good meal of the trip at Aloha Hawaiian Grill in Demopolis, AL! Life is good!🌺
Andy was challenged by Gary Chepke today to complete 101 miles tomorrow. If Andy completes this endeavor, Gary has pledged an incredibly generous donation of 1000.00!!! Andy has obviously accepted this challenge and is so grateful for the opportunity to raise this money for Simon Says Bike.

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.

Simon Says Run for Prostate Cancer, Inc. is a 501(c)3.
