Our thoughts off the bike have turned to packing and returning home as opposed to weather forecasts and mileage. Hoping for a good night’s sleep as mattress issues continue to plague us. We received a brand new mattress which proceeded to deflate. Fortunately the crew was able to replace the replacement with another brand new mattress - 10pm no testing.
Highlights: one rider saw an alligator in the wild, we saw turtles nesting and one crossing the road, each member of a pace line ran over a white object in the road that the leader failed to point out.
