Steve just called from Ashland, VA. He only has about 100 miles left before he’s finished. I tried instigating a 100 mile ride tomorrow, but it sounds like he’s going to try going about 85 so that he has a nice relaxing ride to the coast on Monday morning.
Today was 87 miles from TJ‘s house, finally out of the mountains and into some flatter terrain. The weather got hot again these last few days and Steve would like to stress the fact that it was hot. He claimed that the heat index was over 100 today, but I just checked weather.com and they had it listed as 99, so I’m not sure what he’s talking about. 🙂
