Most of today was routine riding, so I’ll have the pictures tell most of the story. One fun moment occurred when I stopped for lunch at a Subway. The guy making my sandwich took an interest in my ride, which went something like:
Subway guy: You’re cycling to New Orleans? Really?
Steven: Yeah, it’s what I do for fun.
Subway guy: How far is that?
Steven: About 2,000 miles. Would you mind watching my bike while I used the bathroom? My bike is by the window in front.
Subway guy: Sure, but could you bring it inside? I might get busy helping people.
Two voices from a table behind us chimed in. “We’ll watch it.” And the guy standing behind me added, “I’ll watch it too.” I smiled after realizing that everybody in the Subways shop was watching my bike for me.
Here are some pictures.
