Last night the sky opened up and it poured again. Thunder, lightning, and pounding rain. This morning the riders rode off into a thick fog bank that happily turned into a bright and sunny day.
Tomorrow we take our final ride to the beach to finish this journey by dipping a wheel in the Atlantic Ocean. It was odd doing things for the last time today. The last time to load the bags. The last time to have SAG. The last time to have hotel check-in. The last big ride day.
Tonight we celebrated the many successes that came with the journey. New friends, goals set and accomplished, bucket list items now checked off. There are mixed emotions.
And now, a good sleep, a big breakfast, seventeen miles on the bike, and a wheel dip. Not a problem!
