Short day today. Mostly rolling hills. We had a nice tailwind, overcast skies. Jo and Ace were ahead of Roger and I and they had rain, but we stayed dry. All day today we heard the Cicada's humming in the trees.
Roger ferried the bikes on the car out to the front of the park. We were several miles in, and it wasn’t part of the planned route. So, not cheating to carry them out. Jo and Ace went first, then Roger and I. All and all an uneventful, but pleasant ride along hwy 25. Few pics today.

We stopped in Iuka for a second breakfast at McDonalds. McDonalds have redeemed themselves in my eyes with cinnamon melts. 490 calories of sticky, buttery scrumptiousness.

Lodging tonight is at a rather posh Hampton Inn. Posh being pricey, but that’s what you get in a resort area. Roger and May took the car to see if by chance they might find his glasses, and to research our next day's ride. While they were gone, I went for a little walk behind the motel. Nothing spectacular like yesterday, but a nice way to stretch the legs for a bit. Dinner was in our rooms from the ice chests.
