Cruising the bike path
Wallace giving Don a riding lesson
Follow the arrows to camp
I was on the road by 7:50 Am this morning and it was already 700F. The sky was clear and it was looking like it was going to be a cooker. In the mean time the thing to do was to get some miles on before that happened.
The first 30 miles rolled by before I knew it and I was at the first sag stop. There I picked up Don and Wallace. After the sag stop we turned on to a rails to trails bike path. It was really nice being off the highway. The trees were over grown the path and provided a lot of shade. So it was cool and the miles just clicked by. Before I knew it we were down at the second sag stop which was at the 50 mile mark at the end of the bike trail. Ken had ridden the bike path and had checked out the local restaurants and recommended the Chinese place. So Wallace and I joined him for lunch. It was excellent.
After lunch Wallace and I go out there to do the final 30 miles which actually turned in to 35 and we found that the wind had come up and was now in our face. So we got together and took turns pulling into the wind. It was mostly down a busy highway. There wasn’t much to see and it was simply a matter of getting it done. I was feeling strong to day and Wallace was glad to have me with him as he has been suffering from some sort of stomach flu for the last few days.
Tomorrow is our final leg into St Augustine and is only 40 miles. I think there are a lot of people who are glad we are nearly done.
