It was a great day for riding, with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s for almost the entire ride, and almost no hills at all. The sun came out after a few hours, which only warmed things up a little. We mostly finished wearing everything we started out with, so there were no beefcake shots today – sorry girls! 🙂 Mark had a fall in Lake City, where there was construction on US 90 close to its intersection with I10. And we did had several flat tires today – Tim was the only one of us who did not have a flat. But other than that, it was a near perfect day for bike riding. Here are some photos from the ride.
We made it to our lodging for the night at around 2:45 pm, received a tour of the property from Paul Regensdorf, the owner, and proceeded to change our tires and tubes to hopefully prevent any additional flats tomorrow. We walked back into town to purchase an additional tire for Mark’s bike and spare tubes for Tim and my bike, and Matt also purchased a tube patch kit for a wopping $2. We checked out the restaurant we had a reservation for, then walked back to shower and change for dinner. Here are some photos of the Grady House B&B, a really nice place to stay if you ever find yourself in High Springs, FL.
Dinner at the Great Outdoors Restaurant in downtown High Springs was excellent. The beer, the food and the live country music band were a great way to end our day. Photos of my side garden salad and my entree (Tennessee Tenderloin) close out my blog for tonight!
Tomorrow’s ride is either 66 or 85 miles, depending on the route and the wind direction. Stay tuned! Good night!
