45 Out Of 50

Hard to believe this adventure is almost over but we completed day 45 and only have five more days of cycling. When I started this, one of my thoughts was about other cycling events I’ve done. I always wanted to keep riding when the four to ten day rides were over.  Riding for 50 days across the US should take care of that, right?  No. I don’t want this to end!

On the other hand, I miss Dan a lot and will be glad to see him next Tuesday. We are already discussing things we can do together which helps with the wanting to keep riding issue.

Something goofy has been going on with our data plan so I’m afraid to download my photos from the phone so no pictures today. Maybe I can add them in a couple days.

Today’s ride started on a bike path that runs beside the Erie Canal. It was nice to ride for 15 miles or so without worrying about traffic!  When I got to one of the locks, there was a small boat waiting to be let down so it could continue down the canal. Got to see the water let out and the gate opened for the ladies who were waiting to continue their journey.
We have been very fortunate with the weather. Today was another mild day (and the winds were in our favor). My saddle issues are back so I had the saddle adjusted again this evening hoping for better results tomorrow, sigh.

Ninety two miles today. The rest of our days will be shorter.



female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
