Today we cycled from West Yellowstone, MT to Rexburg, ID, a total of 82 miles! We climbed the Targhee pass and crossed over the continental divide. Our final rest stop was enjoyed amongst the finest red Angus cattle in all of Idaho.
Rexburg surprisingly became one of my favorite stops on this bicycle adventure because of the great people of both the Community Presbyterian Church and BYU-Idaho. Gary, a professor at the university, went over and beyond to make our team feel like VIPs across Rexburg. His students greeted us with applause on the way to our showers; they prepared a fantastic feast for us, and led us on
a tour of their beautiful campus.
Ted, our cyclist from Poland, was introduced to a group of students who did a mission in his country and who could speak Polish. A group of us spent some time interacting with the students and teaching them about the mission of the Fuller Center. By the end of the evening, two girls pledged to join next year’s Bicycle Adventure and the group of Polish speaking students wanted to partake on the next day’s ride. Overall, a great day of cycling concluded with amazing people!
