|Much like us cyclists, the Amish use|
reflective safety triangles to stay visible
on the road and protect themselves
from aggressive Pennsylvanians.
-It was our first century ride (100+ miles). Actually is was more like 97.2, but I went around the block a couple of times to cap it off.
-We had two lunch stops because of the day's extreme mileage and heat. At second lunch (the best meal of the day), we had farm fresh cheese, peaches, meats, and raspberry shrub. The food was donated by a Bike & Build alum and his parents and we ate in an Amish-built barn.
-I passed a horse and buggy on my bike.
-A nice Amish lady gave me two free bandanas "to help control my sweat issues." I guess my sweat issues were quite apparent.
|My new favorite road sign - "Truck Use Low Gear"|
-We ended the day in State College and showered in the notorious Penn State locker rooms. The ghost of Joe Paterno is still heavy on the town.
-We had some major descents (see photo).
Next is Johnstown, PA, then a day off in Pittsburgh, then Ohio and beyond
