Pumping up the tires at 5:30 a.m. Everybody is anxious to get home.
Typical crowd of bikers at the Cortland gas station, fueling up for the last 45 miles to Syracuse.
Jace calling 911 in Roca after an idiot in a truck tried to run the teamFire guys off the road, then braked in front of them to try to make them crash into his truck. About 30 seconds before that, he had tried to run Kevin and me off of the road as well. This was the only inconsiderate and dangerous act I witnessed or heard about on the entire 300+ miles of the tour.
Typical scenery on the 52 mile, mostly flat ride from Fairbury to Wilber.
Lunch in DeWitt.
My bike on the back of the van as I had to SAG in from DeWitt due to sharp pain on the outside of my right knee - very disappointing to not be able to finish the easiest day of the tour.

I just finished the Tour de Nebraska, a five day cycling tour of southeast Nebraska. Plenty of hills, heat, wind, and good story telling at the end of the day. Met lots of fun people from diverse backgrounds, and got to see the state from a completely different perspective.
