Mike had just come back from a business trip to Frankfurt, Germany when we met up in New York for our New England bike ride. And he brought with him an uninvited guest: some kind of Medieval Bubonic Plague. And now heâ€™s successfully passed it on to me. @#$%&*#
Notwithstanding our infirmities, weâ€™ve been doing quite well. In the last two days weâ€™ve covered 104 miles, climbed 3100 feet of elevation, and in the process, logged 9 hours and 30 minutes of saddle time as we traveled from Worcester, MA to Nashua, NH and then on to Dover, NH. Today, Thursday, a few miles after we begin, weâ€™ll be entering Maine, our last state. We have transited New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and now New Hampshire.
Not much more for now, but one timing note. I offer my apologies for using â€œtodayâ€ and â€œtomorrowâ€ rather indiscriminately in my write-ups. I usually put my thoughts down in the evening and then formalize them in the morning. â€œTodayâ€ when I write in the evening, is really â€œyesterdayâ€ in the morning when I publish the blog. In the future Iâ€™ll try to use days of the week to be more specific. Again, sorry for any confusion.
For those interested, our Strava links for the last two days are:
