July 2 – Day 20: Collierville, Tennessee to West Helena, Arkansas: Three States in One Day

Today was a long, hot day. It was a lot of fun since we crossed into to Mississippi from just outside Memphis for about 30 miles, then over the Mississippi River and into Arkansas – three states in one day. Although very hot, there is probably very little climbing left until Dallas. Today’s ride was flat, flat, flat. We had dinner at Blues Bayou, a restaurant with alligator bites as a specialty. We weren’t feeling particularly adventurous and went with the streak instead. Overall, a very uneventful day. After dinner, we went to bed early, as we had the night off for the first time in a long time, giving us time to rest for what promises to be a hot and long (>100 miles) day tomorrow.
