We suited up early and departed the top of Ashland at 8:00 A.M. to the cheers of a bunch of our supporters. Ahead of us was 96.7 miles, a forecast of rain and thunderstorms, and the uncertainty of our first day of serious long distance riding. None of us had even come close to a century ride before.
The Pink Pedal has officially begun!
What we found was a great, long ride and a few challenging climbs through the mountains of Pennsylvania.

Around the halfway point we stopped for lunch at a Subway. We also want to say thanks to vitaminwater and Supreme Protein for helping us even last until lunchtime.
The rain poured on us during our biggest climb
We somehow made it to State College, Pa wet, tired, and hungry. It was here we also realized that we have another month of this to look forward to. There are a lot of challenges ahead, but we are ready for them.
