Familiar Ground

Day 64 - 8/6/17 - Roanoke, VA to Vesuvius, VA - 67 Miles

Lori - 255 miles away

Average Speed - I wish it would make up it's mind

Lodging - Hampton Inn, Lexington, VA

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 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.
