All good thing must come to an end, and so Day 8 of BAK took us just 38 miles to Galena and the Missouri border. We rode into town on old Route 66, some of which is seriously showing its age. It was worth it for the delightful photo op at the State Line package liquor store, though. We closed out the ride with a taco lunch in downtown Galena, then boarded the bus for home.

My complete GPS-mapped ride report for BAK Day 8 can be read at Garmin Connect.
