Day 4 to Knoxville

Though short on miles - only 50 - today's hump day ride to Knoxville offered the second most climb at 2,920 feet. I didn't feel like the hills were as rewarding as prior days, but who am I to judge?

Highlights of the route were passing the State Capitol building and through the state fairgrounds in Des Moines and crossing the 1-mile bridge at Lake Red Rock. I didn't get a swim for the first time all week, but the shower at the home of Kevin and Jennifer Bassett Wadle '95 was nearly as refreshing.

Jennifer was Coe roommates with CoeBRAI veteran Amy Wiezorek Schork '95, who should be rolling into camp any time now.

Tomorrow's ride to Oskaloosa offers similar distance and climb to today. Along the way, we'll pass through Pella - home of Iowa Conference rival Central College - before spending the night on the campus of William Penn University.
