Happy 4th! Today was a great day! Easy riding, shade, rivers, and a new state! It felt SO good to cross over into New York. Love getting to hang out with dad at the end of the day with some energy!!
Nothing gets you back in the game like a "easy" day. Today was by far the the easiest and safest with 30+ miles all on trails. Although there was quite a few really bumpy stretches all through out the ride, we were mostly down hill and when we were climbing, it was easy climbing. Like I told Creean, it's better to dodge people than cars.
So.... if you can guess, from the maps.... NYC is on the agenda tomorrow. We are both really excited about getting on the bike in the morning and rolling through Manhatten. We'll have some great pictures tomorrow as we hope to take some time soaking in NYC.
