US Master's Road National Championships, June 28-July 4, Louisville, KY
Traveling East

After arriving in Topeka, Mike and Joe enjoyed some mexican food and a margarita, then hit the sack early in order to get an early start the next day.

This morning, they were on the bikes at 7 AM sharp for an easy hour per their Neal plans, glad to be out before it got any hotter. After a quick stop for their mandatory espresso, they were on the road again at 9 headed east.

By 2:30 PM, they had made it to St. Louis, where they headed to the waterfront for a visit to the Gateway Arch. Having pre-purchased tickets for the ride to the top, they took checked out the exhibits at the base, then boarded the tiny tram pods at the appointed time for the ride to the to 630 feet above.

After taking in the views, the descended back to the ground, and had a nice dinner of scallops at a brew pub near the riverfront. Then it was back in the van for a short trip to their home for the night, a hotel in Shiloh, IL.
