Just checked weather for the few days before our ride in Carbondale, IL–highs in the low 60s with full sun. It’s looking real good. I’m anxious for tomorrow to be able to see the forecast for the first day of our ride. Got in a little tune-up run today before my (running) race Saturday back home in St. Louis. Feeling good about my overall fitness for the ride. T-shirts have been on sale this week–hopefully all of you are putting in orders for those. If you go to school here in Champaign, you can buy those at the Illini Market in Newman Hall or, if not, you can order them online. They cost $13, unless you have a group, then I can give you the group discount where they cost $10 each. Logistics for the ride just about set. I think about the only practical things still needed are getting my bike tuned up and getting a few miles in on my bike next week.
