Day 6 to Fairfield

Had it not rained all night and I wasn't fighting a cold, today's 52-mile pancake ride (only 1,222 feet of climb) would have been a joy. Overcast skies for most of the day kept temperatures low again and a nice tailwind made for a magic carpet ride to Fairfield. Turns out I needed long sleeves and a jacket for comfort instead of sweating out the illness.

Soon enough we were in Fairfield, staying with teammates for just the second time in CoeBRAI history. RAGBRAI virgins Jeff Evanelo and Holly Baker have opened their secluded home to Team CoeBRAI. It's going to be a struggle to leave this serenity for another day on the road, but the Mississippi awaits.

First, though, it's time for the now traditional spaghetti dinner with my homemade sauce (frozen and toted across the state and back for the occasion. I'd better get cooking.
