I just gotta do 60 miles. That's what I kept telling myself day after day after day... To face over 4000 miles was too overwhelming. Well, as I sit here in my campground on the final night of this journey, I'm ecstatic to be able to say that I don't have to do 60 miles anymore.
I'm less than 30 miles from finishing!!
I started riding early this morning and spent the first half of the day working my way around the outskirts of Richmond. I rode through numerous civil war battlefields and stopped often to read the historical markers. The last half of the day I rode on the Capital Trail. It was nice to be on a bike path and not have to worry about looking in my mirror to monitor the traffic behind me.
For dinner tonight I rummaged through my food bag and ate everything there was minus what I will eat for breakfast. Tomorrow my gear will be the lightest its been on this trip.
