Our teammate, Kathy, is heading out to bike the great state of Montana and will be sending daily comments for the blog. Stay tuned and stay updated!
A note from Kathy as she starts her journey…
I am sitting on the bus waiting to head to West Yellowstone. Amazingly enough, I am sitting with a group of people from Iowa or ISU graduates. Several also did the Utah ride that I did, but a different year. This is looking to be a pretty good sized ride. Probably a good thing because I heard at breakfast this morning that there have been four bear attacks in the north Yellowstone area.
As we roll out I look off to my left and see the mountain we will ride on the last day…crazy…and a little intimidating. Oh well. I will worry about that on day seven.
Gal behind me is from Wisconsin and got talked into this ride. She is meeting friends from another state. Parked next to a gal from Peoria, Illinois, so there are a fair number of women on the ride. Should be a great week. Weather is sunny and warm today, not as cold as I thought it would be this morning.
