It was a beautiful thing, the dinner we were served in camp at Jefferson City. The park had a large pavillion were the whole group could fit and eat comfortably. The catered dinner was real good. In fact as far as the whole food thing on this trip was very good. If you were hungry it was your own fault because plenty of good food was offered.
We started the next morning with an early rise and a bike ride back through town and across the river for our breakfast. This morning was the first of two mornings with a session with the pancake man. He is a breakfast entertainer along with serving up a pretty good french toast or pancake breakfast.
Heading back across the Missouri I caught the capitol in the early sunrise.
Early on, a pretty place and another guy who loves his mower!!
Next to the river
Or, next to the bluffs!
Just some photos now of the fantastic area that we get to ride through this morning.
Here we roll up to the only tunnel on the Katy trail near Rocheport.
Today's flower picture, I did not see any turtles today.
After Rocheport we decided to just keep pushing on to our finish town of Boonville to catch some lunch. We pulled into town a hungry and thirsty crew. It was comical as we picked a place right after hitting town. Four sweaty cyclists who downed the first big ice water and cold bottle of beer before the waitress even had a chance to get back to us for an order.
I thought Boonville was the nicest camp spot of the trip for us!! We got a great spot backed up against some bushes.
What a day!! Good riding with friends, beautiful scenery, a bit of history, and a nice evening in a good camp.
We'll get after it again tomorrow, but it will be hard to top today.
