This day is officially known as hump day. It's the middle of the ride. In total, I've come over 250 miles since leaving Rock Valley on Sunday.
Today's route went through beautiful Clear Lake where I had lunch at the Methodist Church, visited the Surf Ballroom (where Buddy Holly played his last concert) and saw the cornfield where his plane went down. When I arrived in Mason City 38.5 miles later, the camp ground had lots of shade. What a wonderful day of riding after the crazy day yesterday!
