The first 4 miles didn't go well, taking 40 minutes. We passed the turn-off to the temporary monument to the spot where Flight 93 crashed. It was eerie to imagine something so horrific occurring in the middle of this rural paradise. The real monument should be open in time for the 10 year anniversary in a few weeks. We couldn’t take the 6 mile detour to check it out in these hills.
After this slow start to the day we joined The Lincoln Highway at 10 miles
It was a really nice ride and when we reached the towns of Bedford and Everett we were pleased to have knocked off one of the longer rides as we make our dash for New York. We were dealt a minor problem with 4 spokes breaking on my rear wheel which means it is making far from circular motion but hopefully we can find somewhere tomorrow to get it sorted.
The 4 miles off the main road to find Woy Bridge Campsite was a very windy and hilly adventure. We knew little about the campsite and sure enough when we arrived it was not as advertised. The guy said they were not open to tents (I find this brilliant coming from a campsite owner) but as I started to warm up to a rant Polly talked him around. We are the only ones here, camped very nicely next to a river in some shaded woodland about to eat steak and ratatouille. YES!
Miles Cycled; 51 with a much fairer % of downhill
No. of times beeped and sworn at: none, a really pleasant day
