Dennis Bitner and John Ferber rode from Pittsburgh to the photo bonus at a mural in Coffeyville, KS. They were waiting on the riders to arrive and sign in by 15:00. However, riders who arrived later would not be allowed in the photo and would not collect the photo bonus. There were 68 flags in the photo bonus. It was not far from Checkpoint 1 in Tulsa, so it made sense for a lot of riders to schedule the bonus in their route for Leg 1.
Riders gathered at a McDonald’s near the photo bonus location for a less-than-healthy bite to eat.
