Wow how was that 18 days? That’s significant to me because it means I’m more that a quarter of the time I think this trip might take. Seems like I just started.
Tonight i made it to Columbus and lucked into a treat. My warmshowers host, Ben, is a bike racer and there’s a Friday night “crit” a few miles from his house that he’ll be racing in. That’s a criterium – a bike race where they do tight little laps on a closed course. It’s exciting to watch because they’re fast and they go by a bunch of times. But they’re often kind of dangerous (Lynda your queue to chime in with how many racers you patched together at the Davis July 4th crits. But it’s a warm night out in Columbus, folks are walking around enjoying the races, food trucks, bluegrass and beers.
Big day today but it wasn’t that hard. Two reasons for that I think; one is that I’m getting used to it and two is that today was all flat, rails-to-trails miles. Pretty easy, even though it was 94 miles.
Part of my motivation for going a little long today is that I’d like to make it to the Wright Brothers Museum on Sunday and to make it there, I needed to get a little ahead today. Thanks, Marv for the suggestion.
Other good news is that my buddy Kent W is joining me tomorrow to ride with me on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing him and catching up.
Have to keep it short tonight, looks like I ran out my keyboard batteries. The pics will have to mostly speak for themselves.
