_Huge shout out to ΔΔ TSU for sponsoring our breakfast for us this morning! We left from Sandpoint Athletic Club early in the morning with a lot of clouds out. Today we’re riding to Thompson Falls, MT.

After waking up early and eating breakfast, we hit the road. When we hit mile 10 or 20, it started to lightly rain. We were all pretty much expecting it though. It ended up raining for a good portion of the day, but everyone was able to stick it out and make the best of the ride. 90 miles later and soaking wet, we arrived in Thompson Falls! Thompson Falls is a nice small town with beautiful scenery all around it, and we were lucky enough to be able to use their high school for lodging that night. After getting showered and changed, Thompson Falls Chamber of Commerce was nice enough to donate a meal to us! The meal was delicious and we can’t thank them enough.
After dinner, we took a picture and had a quick circle up, then had a few hours to ourselves before going to sleep. Some guys took this time to read, do laundry, while I personally spent some time washing my bike from all the dirt and mud that covered it after riding through rain all day. After doing that, I was ready to get to sleep and do it all over again the next day.
