I may not be a Kentucky Derby winner, or a horse, but they only ride for 2 minutes. I rode today for 5:15. Let’s see you do that, California Chrome! So, the Adventure Cycling gurus staying at the Bluebird Goat farm tell me I should only ride between 40 and 50 miles each day for a couple of weeks to build up. Today’s ride was 46.2 miles. I decided to stay at the Midway, FL Best Western. I’ll load up on the breakfast in the morning and take off for Sneads or Grand Ridge, FL. Only a couple of pix today, but here they are:
This is Ralph from Wisconsin. He’s a mail handler for the post office and has made the cross country trip twice! I met him at a convenience store east of Tallahassee. He’s heading to West Palm Beach from San Diego. He gave me some tips and I had him pick my bike up and see if I was carrying too much gear. He said, YES, by about 20 pounds. I’ll be trying pare it down in the next few days.
Here’s where I had lunch in Tallahassee. La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant. Not as good as El Charro in Floyd!
Now it’s time for a trip to the beer store and chicken place next door to the hotel.
