More pictures from 3 weeks ago...

Dave and Nancy, our dear friends from Sturgeon Bay, WI. took these pictures at the finish. Over the past two years, their home has been a destination for me while on my 140-mile rides from Milwaukee to Sturgeon Bay. It's always good to have nice friends who let you use their shower after a long, hot day in the saddle.

Get this man a motel room!

Time for sleep?
