Yesterday’s ride presented a lot of contrasts. There was a quick ride through the last of New Jersey as I hurried to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry first thing in the morning.
Big ocean vistas out on Delaware Bay.
A stretch of rural countryside at the Delaware end of the ferry crossing.
Then came the resort communities of the Delaware and Maryland shores.
These were interspersed with peaceful natural stretches where development seemed very far away.
There was even a big modern bridge that looked like it was opened yesterday. The bridge was probably, at about 70 feet/21 meters above the water, the highest point in elevation by far that I climbed yesterday.
All in all a very nice day for a ride. I’m starting today from Ocean City, Maryland. If I was riding on Interstate 95, I’d be south of Washington, D.C.
