The last 2 days have been amazing! We have been making our way through the Appalachian Mountains in beautiful long stretches.
Our 90 mile ride from Cumberland MD to Parsons WV was truly an experience. I think every part of my physical, mental, and emotional capability was pushed to the brim. Around mile 80 we had climbed just over 8,000 vertical feet when we got caught in a torrential thunderstorm. The storm finally passed and we had an unbelievable 5.5 mile downhill with a 6% grade.
Below are a few pictures from the ride.
We are just over half way through our 10 day ride bender and are definitely feeling it mentally and physically. We have been so blessed with amazing hosts who provide a smorgasbord of food for dinner.
Tomorrow we are dipping into Ohio and I think we are all in need of some sleep.
Keep us posted on what’s going on and feel free to comment with an address so we can send postcards!
