July 29 - Sandusky
Today we had a 70 mile ride into Sandusky. Dennis was doing his ride along today, which is pretty exciting!
We racked the team 20 miles in the middle of the ride because we were not going to finish on time otherwise. It was really stressful, and the cyclists were not happy about racking so early in the ride. We got them back on the road at about mile 49. Every pace line including the one Dennis was in finished the ride.
We had a friendship visit at a Yacht Club on Lake Erie! I can't believe that I have seen two of the Great Lakes! The visit was quite enjoyable, we danced, hung out, and had a water balloon fight!
After the visit we headed to Cedar Point for lunch, and to spend the evening at the theme park. Right as we were finishing dinner it started to pour rain. We got in line for one of the big coasters, but they shut it down for rain. By the time the rain started to slow there were small rivers flowing through the park!
Fortunately the rain did let up, and we were able to get on 2 of the roller coasters. We made in on Millennium Force which is supposed to be the #1 Steel Rollercoaster in the country! It was very intense and quite fun, the view of the lake before the drop was amazing!
We also went to Celebration Plaza to watch the show. It was a very well put together production, I am really glad that we stuck around to watch it. They ended with the song "Uptown Funk" which happens to be the song that we have a choreographed dance to, so that was cool!
