The bike did well today, well done Daisy! Well done us!
I packed all the essential tools to manage a long ride. Well Bob does make a decent cake! I needed energy after all ðŸ˜ƒðŸš´ . It did the job for the ride today and maybe tomorrow because there’s lots left.
Joe said good morning. This charming and thoughtful man wanted me to be safe on the road, suggesting that I should wear a brighter top. Joe doesn’t use the Internet because he says he’s too old but I gave him a business card anyway – to pass onto his granddaughter, so they can take a look at our journey together. Joe was really pleased!
He also said that he was proud of me. That still makes me feel emotional – Joe is proud of someone, whom he’d met only for a few minutes but that didn’t matter and he added meaning to my day.
Joe, I hope you get to read this and see how your words made me feel.
This was Joes view from the balcony. It’s going to be a good day.
With this in mind I spoke to Andy and he took another look at the map. He managed to take the mileage down to 86. I was overwhelmed with joy ðŸ¾ðŸš´ – at least it was a shorter ride.
Another positive was crossing over another state line. Indiana welcomes us. However, the only thing that today’s plan didn’t include was that we lost an hour from our day. We’ve crossed over a time zone.
The pizza was really nice! and John and Hanna @ Brick Oven were genuinely good people. We chatted about our ride, route and the reason we were doing it. John and Hanna wanted to share our story on the company’s FB. Thank you for that.
Then this happened. A tiny piece of metal, had given me a flat.My first flat tyre!
Andy was so pleased that he wanted to hoola hoop with the tyre.
Yes this picture had to go in my blog.
This is a message for Cheyenne a young lady that we met this evening. Both Andy and I want to say there’s no challenge too big if you just put your mind to it. You know you can achieve anything with some applied effort because nothing is handed to you – you have to earn it. You know this. Your reward is in your hands.
