Day 13 and Bethalto, Illinois

June 4, 2010

Today was one of the most beautiful yet toughest rides of the trip thus far.

We faced strong headwinds throughout the entire journey and temperatures were reaching the upper 90s all along Route 66.  It was a relief for all of us when we reached the Ritter household.

We would like to thank George and JoAnn Ritter for giving us a place to stay and ordering us some of the best pizza in all of Illinois along with some great hospitality.

To anyone trying to contact Ty….his phone still hasnt’ been repaired or replaced so if its important you can call one of the other guys or email him at
