This weekend is my weekend off from racing so I'm headed to Iowa to do the Tour of the Mississippi River Valley. The first day starts with 70 miles of rolling hills and then the last 30 miles are all vertical. The ride will take us from Iowa, Illinois, and then into Wisconsin. Its always a good time no matter what the weather and our group is always a lot of fun. If your in the Quad City area and are doing the ROV as we call it find me, I will be the one in the bright red kit with the big V in the middle.
