I made it!! 2100+ Miles!!!
I made it!! 2100plus miles done!! College Station TX to Baltimore MD. So Glad to be done!
It was a tough ride. Lots of roller coaster hills (one really really big one). My Uncle John rode in with me from D.C. and believe it or not, he got hit!!! Yes an older lady didn’t see him and turned in front of him as he was coming down a hill at about 30 mph.
Luckily, he hit the back end of her car and was unhurt (mostly). We were more concerned about the little old lady. But after a few moments, she was just fine and we were on our way again.
But, we made it!! Yea!!!! Now for a little well deserved R&R!!!
Great picture as I passed the Monument
I made it! Whew, it took a lot longer than I anticipated. The ride along was good once I got to the Potomac. There’s a really cool walkway/trail for runners, walkers and bikers so I had to slow down a bit to keep from plowing into people.
Then once I got a little closer to downtown, I got completely turned around (I think in the Georgetown area?) and it took me a while to get back on track. But, the timing was awesome as I met Congressman Flores at the steps of the Capitol building as well as lots of great people from the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN).
Meeting Congressman Flores at the steps of the capitol.
With everything going on yesterday, I forgot to post a status update. I made it into Fredericksburg safe and sound. Lots of pretty steep hills and a huge headwind. I also had a flat and got attacked by horse flies while changing it.
I’m heading into Washington DC today and meeting with my congressman at the steps of the Capitol to discuss the Pancreatic Cancer Education and Research bill that will be up before congress soon. Wish me luck!! I’ll be sure and post lots of pictures!
A well deserved post-ride beer!
Made it in for another successful day. I’m just north of Richmond, VA. Just three more riding days left!! I’m so excited to see Tara and the kids and to take some time off the bike!! Tomorrow is Richmond to Fredericksburg.
I didn’t see ANY church signs today, so not sure what that means other than God didn’t need to send me a message today.
