Goodbye and Hello!
6/30: Today we had to say goodbye to Neal, over the phone. It was one of the hardest things that we have had to do on this trip. Neal has been with us for almost a month and it was so hard to say goodbye. After getting off the phone with Neal, we met up with our fellow Jettriders and left for the Mall of America. We spent a couple hours there then headed back to the church we stayed the night at for dinner with some families affected by Duchenne.
7/1: We got up early this morning and went to the official launch of the Jettride at the Bloomington REI. The mayor rode out with us as well as a police escort, it was a lot of fun. We only rode 45 miles today, but, it got up to 106 degrees so we went slow. It feels very odd to not have weight on our bikes..... We are now in Wisconsin!
