We had relatively good conditions for today's ride. Started out cool and stayed moderate all day. We had some lite headwinds, but nothing that we could not easily handle with our group. Our group as a whole was stronger today following yesterday's break.
Our trip through western Michigan was very scenic - heavily wooded with rolling hills including parts of the Manistee forest.
The road conditions started out great, then turned bad (poor condition) after our lunch stop. We then hit the Pere Marquette bike trail to Midland, which provide a welcome improvement.
We are nearing the end of our transcontinental tour - only 8 more riding days remain until we reach Rye's Beach New Hampshire.
