Jeimy’s Post – June 17 Ride Day 3
June 17, 2011
Ok, so today started off pretty early. It was 6:15 when we headed out from the police station and started our 3rd ride. One of the worst things about today’s ride was having to go up so many hills. Especially when it got later into the day because the sun would be at it’s hottest point, but even with all these hills there were so many great views to admire.
We ended up finishing our ride pretty early because we were scheduled to do a video chat with people from the national park services. We all got ready for this by quickly getting into a town were we could get Internet connection and all wearing our yellow National Underground Railroad Networks to Freedom shirts we got from the National Park Services. After our chat we got back into the van and headed to Selma, Alabama.
We got here around 3 and took some time to go visit the National Voting Rights Museum & Institute and walk across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. This was an amazing thing to do. We got to hear the history for this town and actually be in the same place were people fought for their rights. One of the best parts of this trip is meeting and seeing new things and I would like to thank all the people who helped SnR be able to do this journey.
