On this trip, I haven’t had time to write about what happens each day, compared to other bike tours. In that case, I’m going to try using pictures and captions. If you’re seeing this in Facebook, be sure to click the link above the pictures, to see them all.
It often rains hard in the afternoon, fun to catch raindrops on flower pedals.
Sometimes, I actually watch the road. This is the kind of quiet road we often cycle on.
Here’s something else we sometimes see by the roads.
We’ve crossed the Apalachin Trail a few times. I took this for my neice Shayla Paradeis. She hikded this trail and thousands of miles of others, by herself.
Hikers are fun folks. They laughed and asked me for a lift, on my overloaded bike. The guy on the left is from Minneapolis.
This is one of the nice small towns we cycled through. Other small towns have a lot of closed businesses.
When we stop for lunch, our bikes are a fun sight.
Sometime later, I want to write about some of the ordinary but interesting stuff on this trip, like:
- We’ve stayed in campgrounds, churches, and gymnasiums–only one hotel.
- We take turns cooking in pairs.
- Virginia & Kentucky have mountains like Minnesota has lakes. Or for my UK friends, mountains here are as common as pubs in England. 🙂
