Team Little Guy’s John Radebaugh was positively giddy at the end of a wet and windy day of riding Wednesday. Above is a short video clip of John playing firefighter on a vintage truck at the fire station in Elizabethtown.
The fun and games were earned by the end of the day. The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl swept into SE NC late Tuesday evening and made for a soggy and somewhat breezy ride on Wednesday as the team left Wilmington. The team plodded north, reaching Elizabethtown later in the afternoon.
The team is stopping off in Dunn Thursday evening after the longest leg of the NC tour (83 miles). After a night of rest, the team will get a hearty breakfast and a warm send-off from the staff of State Employees’ CU (Tilghman Drive branch).
Friday, the team heads to Raleigh … then rides into Durham for the Co-op-A-Fair event at Diamond View Park from 11 am to 3 pm. The team would very much appreciate seeing you at this event! (They tentatively should be riding in late in the morning or around Noon.)
The ride has given the team an opportunity to meet with some terrific folks along the way, and more good times are still to come! The ride has also called attention to the Rooftop Garden project that credit unions in North & South Carolina are funding through the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. Your support of this wonderful project is encouraged!
