Cooling Off Towards Casey

We enjoyed a slow breakfast at Starbucks and then paid a visit to a bike shop. These are few and far between (bike shops, not Starbucks) as it seems Americans don’t like bicycles, so we made sure to stock up on spare tubes to get us rolling all the way to NY City.
The ride today was much more relaxing. Yesterday we had bitten off more than we could chew so we settled for a short 40 mile day. We met quite a few friendly locals at drinks stops along the way and had no problems with aggressive drivers
5 miles later we were safely in Casey and found a beautiful lakeside campsite to spend another pleasantly cool evening. The insects are causing us much grief at the moment with bites from head to toe. Otherwise, on we go, now trying to find a route to avoid the city of Indianapolis which has crept up on us.
Miles Cycled; 40 miles still into a strong wind
No. of times beeped and sworn at: 0, a much calmer day at the office
