I missed the entire season this year due to a terrible crash merely a week before the first 200K out of Delavan this spring. I was just recently (like, 2 weeks ago) released to ride again, your timing is outstanding.
Thanks again for putting in the effort to do this!
Still looking for my first customer on this route. I just rode it again yesterday, the 70 miles to Ottawa was great, however the 60 miles of NE headwind on the way back wore me down a little. The wind is usually the other way around.
There is still time to ride this as a daylight ride, I left just after sunrise, averaged less than 16MPH, stopped for 1h15m, and still got back with plenty of daylight left.
