Lewisburg Update #1

The rider tracking (under links on the right) has been updated with the Lewisburg arrival/departure times.  Most of the riders arrived around midnight and were back on course between 4 and 4:30 AM.  Don Jagel is the first rider back out for day #3.

Up ahead is a jaunt down the Susquehanna River, a hop over 2nd Mountain and through the Swatara Gap into the Lancaster area.  After zig-zagging through the maze of Amish farms there, the riders will head into the French Creek area and cross the Schuylkill River as they head to the Quakertown finish.  Another great day of weather on tap, after a chilly start with temperatures in the 50F's and some early morning fog, clear and dry conditions are in the forecast for Lancaster.

Laurent Chambard did not reach the overnight controle. Instead of the nice bed we had waiting for him at the Country Inn & Suites, Laurent opted instead to camp out on the side of the road in the Bald Eagle state forest.  He has been picked by volunteer Ron Anderson, who will be shuttling him back to the finish.
