Day 14: Iowa City, IA to Des Moines, IA

Iowa looks flat when you drive through the state in a car, as I have several times, but when you’re on a bike you realize there are a lot of rolling hills.

Today was a pedaling workout, but the weather was gorgeous and a little breezy, nothing like the tough conditions we faced yesterday.

I managed to work up quite an appetite from all the exercise. The Notre Dame Club of Des Moines had a barbecue for us, and I ate four hamburgers and piles of banana pudding! The setting was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the company was even better.

We had a great turnout with alumni, incoming students, current students, College of Science graduates and more. We told many great Notre Dame stories and everyone signed the van. My new buddy, Lucas, sported the official Road to Discovery riding jersey.

On to Nebraska tomorrow!
