Day 3: Fort Dodge to Eldora

Another easy day on paper was no walk in the park for the eight brave souls who opted for the Karras Loop and a century - cycling lingo for 100 miles.

Me? I shaved. But there's no patch for that.

Amy Schork, Jennifer Wadle, Jim Strickland, Andy Hansen, Teresa and Greg Barnett, Bob Beer and George "The Rock" Ebert all went the extra 27 miles necessary to log 100 for the day.

The rest of us didn't. Still, a third straight 70+-mile day was plenty. We all were rewarded with great hospitality and another fine meal from our Eldora hosts Steve and Lisa Sunkle, parents of 2013 grad Zach.

Tomorrow brings a welcome break with a mere 58 miles to Cedar Falls. It's the shortest ride of the week.
