Day 49 - Brattleboro, VT to Manchester, NH (79 very hilly miles)
Wow! Day 49! We're almost there. It was a beautiful start to the day today. Here's my next to the last start of the day picture of my trip.
We had a little bicycle art around the fountain to start the day.
...and we entered our final state.
One of the few times we've seen a cyclist in the water, that didn't get wet. Here's Derrika.
....and another one bites the dust. Katie dropped out today, so after a little research, it looks like Todd and I are the only remaining members of our group going into day 50. Let's hope we both make it to the beach. More on this tomorrow....
Just gotta love all the cool old buildings in these New England towns....
Well, tomorrow we head for the beach. It seems like we've been riding forever, but at the same time, like we just got started. It'll be curious to see what it feels like to get to the end of our journey. I have a feeling that it might take a few days, or even weeks, just for it to sink in, that we had in one place, 50 people who were all crazy enough to ride our bicycles across the entire country.
Check back tomorrow....it'll be time to party.
Thanks for reading.
