Day 44

Tuesday - We had another cold, wet day today.  It drizzled off and on all morning and then started coming down more steadily for the last part of our ride.  Of course, it stopped only a couple kilometers from camp.

Our route took us through downtown Flint.  We were warned ahead of time not to ride through it on our own.  It looked pretty bad with lots of graffiti and boarded up buildings.  It was certainly a vivid picture of the poverty we are fighting against.

A lot of new riders have joined us this week.  This morning I passed someone who rides his unicycle for part of the ride.

Tonight we're staying at Imlay City High School.  Member of the local CRC came by after dinner to serve us ice cream.

Today's route.
