Today’s ride took us through farmland and onto the Mississippi River Levee. Ride was mostly flat a welcome relief from all of the hills. We ended the day in Chester, Illinois the home of the creator of Popeye. We rode on this section of the route in 2016 in a huge rainstorm and saw some sites we remember from that day.
