Here are Carolyn and Pat,both from Vermont, but I think they did not know each other before this tour. Carolyn rode her first century ride yesterday, and Pat (on the right) finished the ride as well. Although it was not her first century, she had only ridden her bike 100 miles TOTAL this year before this trip. It's hard to train in Vermont with all the snow...
We were on the same road just about all day. It was smoothly paved, but with no shoulder. Right after my phone call this monster farm equipment came past taking up the whole width of the road. For the most part people were considerate of our safety. Dianne, Marni and I rode together all day.
Before we were done the rest of the cyclists started coming in. Jane got a very warm welcome!
It was just a short ride to the hotel, and we were able to check in early. Now it's cooldown time. I am having issues with the heat and humidity... When done riding I spend the rest of the day in air conditioned comfort, except for dinner, which is always outside, but it is usually cooler by then.
