Luckily you missed the tennis ball sized hail that came through PA yesterday. Hoping the humidity lifts so your a bit dry in the saddle this weekend. Happy Memorial Day. Your mom's bike should be in UPS this weekend.

Had the chance to meet you guys as you were finishing your day in Lexington. Hopefully you guys make it downtown for some local dining! Lots of great options. Good luck on your amazing journey across the country. Stop at Foamhenge in Natural Bridge if you get the opportunity!
