Day 4 – Spokane (Pronounced SPO-CAN)-First Century

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Today was our first century (or 100 miles) and it was a blast. We woke up early (as usual) to depart from Coulee city. There must have been something in the ice cream from the night before because we flew on the road.

First Century

We had a fantastic lunch provided by a Pi Alpha from subway 60 miles into our ride. The food and rest off the bike gave us the energy we needed to finish the ride strong. We finished our ride in just under 6 hours, which was great time. The day went flawlessly with zero flats, which is practically unheard of for a century ride for 21 cyclists.

We had a police escort into Spokane which was very cool and made us feel like pro’s riding into a big city. Dinner was provided by Pi Alpha’s and their family and was delicious, we had burgers and hot dogs and there was even an eating contest to see who could eat the most burgers.

The day was finished off with KOB practice and then everyone hit the town, we walked around Spokane trying to find a place with milkshakes, but had trouble finding a place to serve 27 guys at 11p.m.
