Limited visibility due to fog this morning provided a uniquely quiet, almost mystical cycling experience. As the tour moved forward the fog lifted and by the time the riders crossed into PA the sun was shining.
SAG at the White Turkey Diner is always a favorite tour stop, and today was especially nice. Turkey sandwiches and root beer floats fueled the riders for the final 25 mile ride into Erie to begin the last rest day of tour.
A wonderful day of cycling, a beautiful summer evening on Lake Erie, and flowers blooming every where. On Friday, after a day of rest, it’s time to get back on the road and ride to Boston.
