We planned on starting with shorter distances and gradually working up to longer days. Well it only took 42 days of riding to work up to a 70 mile day 🙂. Full disclosure - in Osmond, while waiting for our motel room, we decided to mail our camping gear ahead to Grandpa Lee in Dayton Ohio. Whew and we are glad we did! Today’s route along US 20 was really challenging. There were dozens of hills, some of the worst road conditions of the whole trip, and road construction. If you are interested in the hills take a look at the route profile on Ride with GPS. We expected hills like this in Iowa but they started on this last day in Nebraska. We passed several milestones today: finished the crossing of Nebraska (413 miles), crossed the Missouri River, and passed 1900 miles in total.
