  This pastoral scene was what I had in mind when I signed up for this bike trip. We had 4 miles of this fantasy this morning before the hills began again. It was heavenly!

  Really gorgeous morning.

  After miles of heavy traffic we took some quiet, relatively flat side roads. Nice!

   Dave and I decided to meet at the town of Glendie, VA. I can't imagine how I could have missed the town sign. Fortunately  Google said, "In 50 feet your destination will be on the left. You have arrived."

 After doing laundry in the motel sink, it is time for the dry cycle. This is how it works on a bike. You clip everything on and in 80 degree sun it drys as you ride along.

Today was good. Warm, dry air and I only walked a couple (4 short) hills . Had an icy cold strawberry milkshake at McDonald's. And when the energy was really flagging, Dave suggested Mountain Dew for the double dose of caffeine it offers. It really did work.

My body does not know why the heck I am feeding it these foreign objects.

Tonight we are at Warm Showers host, Jim S. in Fredericksburg, VA. He has a great collection of art that was so interesting. He also fed us a great dinner!
