Day 9 Update

Chris texted:
Day 9. The days I love!!! No drama!!! 😂😂😂. BUT where's the adventure and memories at when everything goes right???? Never thought about that, a lot of our most memorable moments in life are the ones that come from our mistakes, faults, forgetfulness, misunderstandings and weaknesses that we can look back at and laugh. It's not usually the moments where everything goes right, those are boring!!!😂😂😂. Everyday I feel I'm getting smarter and stronger. Smarter in terms of how I eat and drink before, during and after the ride. I got off to an early start at around 5:10 am, and I was at the campsite by 10 AM. 60 miles, 588 miles total. There was a hill inside the Mousetail State Park That has a 19% grade (which is very very steep for a road hill). A normal street hill is around 7%. It was the steepest hill I ever came across, unfortunately I was unable to get up it on the bike! 😂. (BTW, Andy made it up the hill!!). So for the most part, it was a boring good day of biking...which is always good. The Tennessee scenery is everything I hoped it to be, beautiful!!! Tomorrow we have a big day with 70 miles with over 5000 feet of accents which means a lot of HILLS!!! So it will be an early night to get a good night sleep!!! Thank you again for the continued support and especially the prayers!!! 😀😀😀

Day 9 is done! 
Our cyclists pedaled from Savannah, Tennessee to Mousetail Landing State Park in Linden, Tennessee. Andy’s route took him 60 miles for a total of 3,081 ft elevation. Chris’s route was also 60 miles and was a total of 2,864 feet elevation. The rolling hills of Tennessee are showing themselves to the riders and Andy said one of the tallest and longest hills he has climbed thus far was the entrance to the state park where they are camping.💪🏼🚵🏻‍♂️💨💙🚵🏻‍♂️💨🏕

Andy posted an early video on Facebook:
