And we're off
Flooding in northeast Iowa is prominent in all of our minds as we begin this adventure. Our prayers go out to all of the affected communities, some of which we will be biking through in just a few days.
If the forecast holds, we're in for nice weather to open the week. With 3,687 feet of climb over 68.5 miles, rain would only add insult to injury.
We'll be wearing our Coe jerseys into Beaver country, as Storm Lake is home to Buena Vista University. Our host is Erin Toomer Smith '99. More later. Must sleep.
