Yesterday was one of the nicest ride days of the trip. I did a little over 60 miles/100 kilometers.
It wasn’t any particular thing that made it so nice- actually it was mostly cloudy and breezy for much of the day. But there were interesting bridges
long stretches of rail trail
and some nifty urban riding in Providence.
Then there was a great run down the coast opposite Newport to Point Judith, where I stayed last night at an excellent state campground. The Atlantic Ocean beaches were magnificent.
And I’ll admit it- I was bad. I rewarded my effort with a nice pizza.
We’ll see how that affects the next weigh-in.
Today I’ll continue along the coast into Connecticut, where I hope to have a late lunch with a friend in Groton. I’ll then catch a ferry in New London to Orient Point on Long Island. A busy day, but it’s sunny and the wind is with me this morning.
