Winding Down

Day 66 - 8/8/17 - Charlottesville, VA to Mineral, VA - 58 Miles

Lori - 135 miles away

Average Speed - Calculating this everyday makes my head hurt

Lodging - Camping at Volunteer Fire Station - Free

Today was an uneventful day.  I bid Sonny farewell this morning and rode away on a bike fully laden with gear once again.  The mountains are done, but don't think for a second that the climbing is over.  I climbed over 4000 feet today over undulating hills. 

I rode at a relaxing pace, with no sense of urgency.  I'm trying to process the fact that this is my final week.

Speaking of my final week, let's talk a bit about the end of this ride.  I'm expecting to ride into Yorktown on Friday (8/11).  Thursday night I will be camping at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park.  I plan to start riding at 8ish AM on Friday morning and ride the Virginia Capital Trail to Jamestown.  I will be in Jamestown around 9ish AM.  I will ride the Colonial Parkway from Jamestown to Williamsburg.  I will be in Colonial Williamsburg around 10ish AM.  I will continue riding the Colonial Parkway to Yorktown and expect to conclude the ride at the Yorktown Victory Monument at around 11ish AM.

If you would like to ride with me on the last day for all or any part, I would love the company.
