Day 1 (May 29th 2016) Yorktown – Jamestown, VA 44 miles

 

Day one is in the books! Today we went from Williamsburg east to the official start of the trail, Yorktown, and headed back west to Jamestown. In total, it was a little over 40 miles. A nice easy start to the beginning of the trip. There were some rolling hills that weren’t the worst and it rained intermittently throughout the day, adding a refreshing element to the ride.

My parents met us in Yorktown with Addie, where I had to say goodbye. It may have been a tearful goodbye, but it was raining, so the world
may never know.

The strange coincidence of the day was receiving a text from my high school friend, Val, stating that she had seen me riding. She is visiting Williamsburg for the weekend. What’re the chances?!

Camp is all set up, I’m showered, and waiting for dinner (veggie chicken pasta). Tomorrow is calling for rain, but fingers crossed they’re wrong!

Distance: 43.64 miles
Time on bike: 2 hours 33 min
Avg speed: 12.3 MPH
max speed: 26.4 MPH
Sheena’s corner: I can’t believe I’m missing Game of Thrones tonight. And there is a bug flying around me for like 15 minutes. I don’t know where it is *Sheena has been getting attacked by bugs all night*
