The Angela’s House Bike Ride Starts

The long awaited trip is off to a bad start. William and Jay were to leave on JetBlue yesterday at 3pm. Due to storms, they were grounded for hours and did not leave until 8:30 pm. They arrived in Jacksonville at 11:30 pm. Minor set back: riders were in Florida but bikes were still in New York! No one had any information and JetBlue was unable to find the bikes until this morning at 11:30 am. Once at the hotel, the bikes were assembled and William and Jay decided to head out ahead of schedule, anticipating that more trouble may be lurking ahead. With no lunch, and 98 degree heat, they got lost and were already tired. They traveled 45 miles in 4 hours. At 5:30, they arrived at the Ramada Inn in Kingsland, Georgia. They jumped in the hotel pool, which felt like a hot bath. They discussed the plan, which starts at the Waffle House tomorrow at 5am and on the road at 6 am. They completely changed course from their previous plans to take 301 and are now taking RT. 17 through Savannah and Myrtle Beach. Their spirits are good, but the pressure is on. They learned today that they MUST be on time, as Jericho is being shut down to allow for the Bag Pipers on Saturday!
