Today’s blog is going to be brief as everyone’s waiting on me for dinner and then we’re headed to a concert. We had another fun day at RAGBRAI. We spent the morning searching for Chris’s Cakes (the best pancake stop on RAGBRAI) and found it about 20 miles into the ride in Hanover. We got a later start today finally leaving our host house and hosts Marlin and Sherry at 7:30a. It must have been the cinnamon rolls and coffee they had for us that delayed us. Anyway, we all enjoyed our breakfast stop at Chris’s Cakes and then rode about 45 minutes when Brenda saw a sign for Root Beer Floats and was on a mission to get one. Today’s mileage has longer as we rode 69 miles and it got HOT today as it was well into the 100’s.
We had a great lunch stop at Tender Tom’s again and then rode to Lakeview. We’re actually staying 8 miles out-of-town in Sac City (the home of the World’s biggest Popcorn Ball) at a community center Holly found for us that has a pool and A/C which felt soooo good! And of course we had another World’s Capital, this time it was Schaller, IA the Popcorn Capital of the World. Like I said I need to be brief today, so here’s a few pictures. Now it’s off to dinner, cold beer and live music…not a bad day!!!
