This weekend we had our final build day, working on a few different projects in Kansas City, Missouri. Each of our build days have been unique, providing an opportunity to work on a different task each time. It has made me appreciate the process of building much more — whether you are starting from scratch, remodeling, or just doing yard work, each project has its own challenge and requires a lot of work and commitment no matter what.

Greetings from the north side of Kansas City, Missouri. We rode 76 miles from Northside Christian Church in Warrensburg to Northland Cathedral. The weather forecast called for rain throughout the day with a high probability of headwinds for the first half of our ride. When we got up and looked outside this morning it was raining steadily. All of us anticipated being wet throughout the day.

Today the team pedaled from Hermann, Missouri all the way to California. You heard me right, all the way to California! California, Missouri that is. Yesterday we took the Katy Trail most of the way from St. Louis to Hermann.

I’m feeling the fatigue from today’s hot century ride and the consistently strong 15-20 mph head and cross winds. After setting my phone alarm for 0415, I retire early. It’ll be a back to back century tomorrow and I want to get as much rest as possible.

We made it to Illinois! This is a special place to me because I grew up in Illinois and developed my love for cycling in the corn fields of Dekalb, where I went to college (NIU).

Our day started with members of the Calhoun Baptist Church coming in at 5 a.m. to make us biscuits and gravy. The little church that could the first and only to serve us breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. And leave us with a very generous donation for the Fuller Center’s work.
