We Made It

Hey everyone - It's Trixie reporting tonight. We made it safe and sound to Iowa. We faced some rain on the way, but had our share of sunshine as well. When we arrived it was in the mid 70's and now has dropped to the 40's. Gus and Aris are looking at mid 30's for the start at 4 a.m.
T-Bock's welcomed us for registration and dinner Pasta Feed - enjoyed hearing some TransIowa advice from the man himself

Guitar Ted giving us the low-down - guidelines and course changes (only one so far - a river crossing has been taken out due to the excessive amounts of rainfall)

This is where it all begins...a nice climb up Quarry Hill Rd. We rode the first few miles of the course tonight ...long gravel climb..followed by some nice downhill - potholes galore

Gus and Aris spent the night going over every last detail...and now are resting safe and sound. The alarm is set for 2:30 am. I plan to post some updates tomorrow.
