Day 43: Madison to Woodstock
81 miles from Madison, WI, to Woodstock, IL. I rode with Jim Amels for the entire day, and we joined Barb Mellema, John Vandersteen, Louis Bosma, Jerry Kobes, and Pete Van Noord for the final 25 miles or so. We crossed into Illinois, but sadly there was no "Welcome to Illinois" sign because we were on a back-country road instead of on a main highway. So, the "State Line Rd" sign had to suffice. Along the way, a ministry to disabled individuals found out that our route went right by them, so they handed out bottled water. A handful of us stopped, and we had a ton of fun riding on their paved (read: wheelchair accessible) nature path.
