week ten//day sixty-nine

@ambrau reads a wonderful letter from @stephencook95 , our baby angel intern and friend, to us at our denny’s team breakfast before we hit he road
.
the route gives us a taste of everything: gravel, potholes, giant climbs, country roads, city traffic, smooth pavement. it’s a perfect ride to end on, a reminder of everywhere we’ve been
.
our people are out to support us today: my parents meet us at water stop 01, @will.deheeger and Asher join @danahowein the van and @ronpepmtb drives by right as @pepperabby get a flat and fixes it for us. we’re out to support each other too: @cherylpepper35 removes the stitches from @ryanmichaeldunn chin && we dance circle to every song we’ve loved this summer
.
over the bridge and into the water is electric. friends ahead of me, friends behind me, we really did it. our stop//start peloton reaches our screaming friends and family on the beach where i cry into my dad’s shoulder. despite this stupid disease that changed both our lives forever i’ve followed in his footsteps
.
@suz.robinson @patrickrobinson_@ciarasoreilly @927quilt @wolfwoman1@makaluhh @worriedaboutbees @hundme@greenkat88 @kathstrazz cheer us on as we dip our tires in the bay && later when @jesse.lavine_t1d @ryanmichaeldunn and i dip our bodies in the bay too. we take our families to a bar nearby && cheers to a wild, wild summer 🥂
