BLOG ENTRY Day 22. | 06/24/18 | 6:30 p.m. 'Rode Hard And Put Up Wet.' That's right partners. As Al and Steve officially said goodbye to the West and hello to the Midwest, we'd be remiss if we didn't throw down some authentic cowboy vernacular to help rekindle some of the sights and sounds of the twenty-second day of Pink Pedals 4 A Cure | Terry's Ride 2018. Without further ado, please enjoy something we like to call ... The Best Of The West, Sometimes They Were Stressed, But It's All About The Quest, Raucous Reszel Roundup (The Sunday Evening Edition). SUNDAY ROUNDUP ITEM 1. 'According To Hoyle'
Cowboy translation ... Correct, by the book. Al and Steve left Vinita, Oklahoma at 7:40 a.m. (CDT) with temps in the low 70s and a steady rain.
SUNDAY ROUNDUP ITEM 2. 'All Beer And Skittles'
Cowboy translation ... Unpleasant, not so happy. Sunday was a LONG, HARD, WET day. Al and Steve covered 82-miles, 8-hours in the saddle with only one hour without rain. And to make matters worse, our boys had to deal with yet another flat, five in all between Al and Steve.
SUNDAY ROUNDUP ITEM 3. 'Apple Pie Order'
Cowboy translation ... In top shape, perfect order. While the weather wasn't on their side, road conditions continued to improve as Al and Steve finished today in Carthage, Missouri, wet to the bone but feeling great! Truth be told, due to the poor weather conditions, Al had planned on a 60-mile ride today but our boys in Pink pushed for an additional 22-miles.
SUNDAY ROUNDUP ITEM 4. 'Bend An Elbow'
Cowboy translation ... They've been known to have a drink. Al, Terry, Steve and, Leanne have something to celebrate tonight. Al reached Afton, Oklahoma, the official halfway point of the Los Angeles to New York Ride.
