I was so excited when I got up this morning I couldn’t wait to get on the bike. I was packed, caffeinated and ready to go before 9:00. Kind of gloomy day out but the forecast said no rain until late in the day so I saddled up.
Mostly smooth sailing today through back roads with little traffic. The last 10 miles was more trafficked than I like but I had a good shoulder and folks here seem respectful of bikes. No sweat!
Just like that and I’m already in my second state. Maine we hardly knew ye. I will definitely be back though – what a gorgeous state.
I’d planned to camp tonight but no go – it’s raining and I have a rule about not setting up a tent in the rain. But I found a hostel that is lightly occupied – Samara and Tim who run it are super accommodating.
Great day 1! I’m left feeling so lucky to have the opportunity to do this. Thanks, Babe!
