This morning the temps were in the mid 50s. I had to add a layer for the first couple hours. Temps in the 50s and low humidity...in VA...in August...how cool (no pun intended) is that?
This morning I rode into Buchanan, the gateway to the Shenandoah Valley. I crossed the James River...
I passed through Lexington and crossed the Maury River...
...and for the first time on this trip, I found myself on roads I've ridden before. Every Summer, my friends, Steve and Bob, and myself spend a weekend riding in the Shenandoah Valley. These roads are our pedaling grounds.
My ride today ended in the little town of Vesuvius. I am happy to report that my name now decorates the walls of Gertie's Country Store.
