Yesterday we biked 75 miles and started into the Adirondack’s, so the hill climbing is back. We have 2 big, long grades to go up today that are 4 or 5 miles long. The Adirondack’s are famous for the “colors” in the Fall as the leaves change and we are right at the beginning of that. We have already seen some beautiful scenery and we are just entering the mountains. The next four days will be tough going, but we only have 5 days of biking left, the light at the end of the tunnel is getting bright. We stayed at Redfield, New York and are planning on going 75 miles today to Raquette Lake to a camp ground.
We stopped at a bike shop yesterday and got John’s bike fixed good as new, and my “Shin Splints” are not getting any worse and are “bearable”, sort of the “grin and bear it” category. I will be able to finish strong, and will try not to whine to much!!
love you all very much, Dee
