I’ve mentioned that, south of New York City, my trip plan calls for me to put in 60 mile/100 kilometer days. Every day. For a month.
Now, this is basically possible because, between there and Key West, the terrain can pretty much be summed up in two words: parking lot. During the trip to date hills have slowed me down, sometimes a lot. On stretches like rail-trails where there is no appreciable elevation change or, at worst, almost imperceptible grades I am currently riding at around 14-15 miles/~25 kilometers an hour, and I can apparently sustain that speed for a long time.
So I was pleased today on a somewhat hilly route to find that I had made it 58.5 miles/about 95 kilometers.
I can do this!
I did run into my first major routing glitch.
A three year bridge replacement project according to a nice guy who stopped and asked if I was lost when he spotted me staring forlornly at the construction barriers. The bridge still shows up as open on both Google and Apple maps. Oopsie.
Weigh-in day tomorrow. The suspense is killing me.
