In the wake of the storm, the weather for our 76-mile ride to Troy on Friday was quite pleasant (details). It was another long ride. The morning was mostly easy flatland. A burger, fries and ice cream lunch in Horton prepared me for the afternoon hill-climbing festival! The citizens of Troy then threw a huge block party for us that evening, and no one walked away hungry.
