One down, four to go! We had a great first day for the ride. We gathered to start at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Oakland, Maryland. The pastor was there to pray for our ride and then we were off.
The ride began with a dramatic descent down Backbone Mountain. Fortunately no one needed to use the runaway truck ramps. Our only incident was some unexpected road construction where one lane of a two lane road was closed for several miles. The construction supervisor came to our rescue and personally escorted our group through.
We continued through Westernport to Frostburg before having lunch in Cumberland. Chick-Fil-A graciously provided lunch for our group and we received a warm welcome from the customers that were there. After lunch we continued on to finish the day arriving at Rocky Gap Resort after riding 60 miles.
Throughout the day, our riders focused on two prayer cards, one from Cambodia and one from Malawi. In addition to praying for our brothers and sisters in Cambodia and Malawi, the riders were entertained by the crew members along the way.
