...and there were plenty of hills for the riders along the way.
Heather and I got into Indianola around 5, I would say about 1/2 of the riders had arrived by that time.
We parked at my parents house and met up with our friends Josh, Kelly and Hudson and headed up to the square. It was crazy...people everywhere, but it was pretty fun too! There was a lot of people watching and plenty of people to watch.
Along with all the bicycles there were also a lot of hot air balloons flying. We walked back to my parents house and saw this one in the air.
My mom had some watermelon for us. It was a big hit, Josh, Hudson, and Kelly all loved it!
We had a great time hanging out in Indianola and seeing all the bike riders. We ended up heading out of town around 9:45 and to my surprise there were still riders getting into town. I can't imagine trying to set up a tent in the dark after riding 77 miles, but that is what memories are made of! Big thanks to my parents for hosting us for the evening.
