Pleasant, if non-descript riding all day. We are seeing more little vegetable gardens beside people's homes. For some reason in the south we didn't seem much gardening going on.
We met one friendly dog at a stop along the road. He didn't want to chase, just wanted to make friends and perhaps score a treat or two.
We arrived in Newton at around 12:30 and since Newton has a bike shop we thought we would see if we could get some work done on the bikes. Newton Bicycle shop was able to work on all the bikes this afternoon, which means our rest day in Hutchinson can be spent on other fun things. Nice!
We had lunch/pie at a local place called Bread Basket that was delicious. They were recommended by the bike shop. Then back to the motel to wait on the bikes. Once the bikes were ready, May drove us all back to the bike store. We rode the bikes back to the motel to be sure everything was working properly. Only one detour on the way back ... we stopped for ice cream of course!
