Wind

This week we have seen tailwinds and crosswinds, but also plenty of headwinds. At first, the wind destroyed our spirits and felt insurmountable. But just like the rain, we have become accustomed to the conditions and grown stronger. Passing through the plains of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, I have seen countless acres of soy and corn as I battle the relentless wind. Tomorrow is a short day, so we will use it to recover.

The only hitch in tomorrow’s activities is that we have to exterminate the bed bugs that have infested our vans and trailer. Thy will have to be cooked at some extermination facility for six hours while we ride. We will be unsupported, but, again, it is a short 53 miles (94 miles yesterday was long).

Here’s some more pictures you may enjoy.

About jasonbikestheusforms

I am a college student from Eldersburg, MD. I am biking from Maine to Seattle, WA to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The goal is to help end MS for all those affected. Who knew a bicycle could be such a good tool for this cause? This blog will serve as a log of the adventures of my training and my actual journey next summer.

    Hope you saw lovely flocks of fireflies above those corn and soy fields.
