2012 Bicycle Adventurer
After starting the week off with 2 easy ride days (at least they were easy in comparison to the 3 days of 90+ miles which we finished last week with) we pulled into Savannah early yesterday afternoon where we were welcomed with open arms to our newest home, First Presbyterian Church of Savannah. Despite their bustling activities, everyone made room for us to sleep, arranged shower accommodations, and provided us with some fabulous meals! We even had a local tv station, WTOC, waiting for us as we pulled up to the church!
We spent the afternoon relaxing and after our wonderful dinner provided by our new friends at First Presbyterian, we were joined by two past riders, Michael Tiemeyer and Krystal Goodwin! Though only a few of the current riders had met them before, once you are a part of the FCBA family, you’re always a part of the FCBA family and everyone quickly fell in love with them. They took us for an incredible night on the town with a walking tour through beautiful parks, historic houses, awesome little shops including the best ice cream we’ve had on this entire trip, then down to the river for a beautiful view and some live music. When we finally got back to the church just after 10pm, we had walked nearly 6 miles and spent almost 4 hours doing it! What an awesome evening! (Though we sorely missed Maranda who we made stay back at the church to nurse her spider-induced cankle).
