Epic Ride, Day 79:
I’m in Lincoln, Nebraska, after my longest day of the whole trip: 612 miles.
I’ll be home tomorrow after 409 miles and almost 6 hours (according to MS Streets and Trips).
Today was cool when I left South Bend, rainy in western Illinois and hot and windy in Iowa.
I rode for an unknown distance with my right pannier open until a Good Samaritan pulled alongside, pointed at the bike and mouthed “BAG!”
