Day 29

Posted: June 30, 2012 in Bike Ride Across America 2012


The word for the day: Surprise! I rode the Central Lakes and Lake Wobegon Trails from Fergus Falls to Sauk Centre, MN. I met Jen and the kids for lunch in Alexandria, and right as we were finishing, I looked up to see Bryan, Becky, Kate & Colin Ross – friends from Campus Lutheran in Columbia – walking toward our picnic table. Bryan brought his bike and the rest of the family held up signs of encouragement and support. Not only did Bryan ride with me today, but my daughter Emma and son Brennen also rode this afternoon. At the end of the day we were greeted by my friend George, who led us to his mother Bev’s house, to a home-cooked meal and a peaceful Minnesota lake.
