As I said in the last post, today was a my-legs-don’t-want-to-work kind of day. I doubt I’ll do another 100-mile day unless there’s no wind and no hills.
Said goodbye to everyone who hadn’t already left and sped off around 7 AM.

I have one simple rule when it comes to camping. Don’t camp on someone’s private property, because I wouldn’t want someone camping on mine without my permission.
On May 15th I left my home in Connecticut to bike across the states to San Diego. 17 days later, I’m sitting on over 1,000 miles pedaled in…
