I first made my way to Chesapeake Blvd. to ride along the water.
As I rode, I could see my destination in the distance and watched as it grew nearer.
I traveled through downtown Hampton and then found a small bike path that took me to Hampton University. I rode through the university and the adjacent medical complex, all the while paralleling the interstate.
Crossing over the interstate, I once again detoured into the neighborhoods and rode through Phoebus and after an hour of riding at a very slow, relaxed pace, I found myself but on small bridge from my destination.
I pushed on and in a matter of minutes stood outside the Chamberlin Hotel which I had been keeping an eye on for most of my commute.
I rode even slower through historic Fort Monroe to my final destination...
The ride - in a word - BEAUTIFUL!!!
