And I have officially completed PowerDot Grand Tour & Trek Century Challenge! The goal getting into this ride was to go beyond my targeted mileage (13.90 miles) in order to conquer it convincingly! It was a morning that started out with a rain storm at 3 AM which hindered the possibility of an early morning ride, so that I could knock both challenges out sooner before the heat rolled in.
It was not until I hit downtown Chicago when I decided to cut the bullshit and located the ‘Route 66’ sign which was easy because it sat on Adams St within Michigan Ave & Wabash Ave. I captured a picture of the other sign near Michigan Ave, but my file damaged while transferring it from my phone to thumb drive. Thankfully I was able to share this one near Adams St & Wabash Ave.Historic route begins – Route 66Eternal Flame of Hope – Special Olympics31st Street BeachNow that I have completed this 100 mile journey, I think its time to get my bike a tune-up. I do not plan on entering any cycling challenges for the month of August unless it is something shorter than 50 miles.
