Day 23 Lebanon, IN to Richmond, IN 105 miles
We had breakfast at the hotel today, then went and visited the Roark bike factory. It was interesting enough … and amazing to see how expensive bikes and bike components can get … a $1,200 aero bar for example … but I was glad to get back to the hotel and get on the road … although not until a little before 9:00 AM. It was a good ride … no tail wind and a bit of a tailwind (mostly from the side though). We got in a bit before 4:00, stopping of course at DQ.
I stopped at a bike store in Richmond and bought a chain and a water bottle. Then had Shane install the chain. I noticed a bit of a wobble in the bottom bracket … the cranks are on tight, so not sure what to do. I have my fingers crossed that it will hold out okay.
For dinner we went to an all you can eat buffet that was next to the hotel. It was pretty good.
I looked at Mike’s web site … he does a great job at it, but he got his facts wrong for yesterday … he said Jerry and I missed the sag stop, but we didn’t. No big deal though.
