Spots we loved:

Things we learned:

  • Even when at the airport with more than enough time, it’s possible to miss your flight.
  • Purchasing expensive, untested cycling technology right before a tour will surely cause frustration.
  • You will always bike more than you anticipated for that day.
  • Terror + Ice Cream can be adequate fuel for about 90 miles
  • Laundry stops are critical.
  • Have a Plan B.  And a Plan C.
