4-30-15 Palitka to St. Augustine, FL 46 miles

Our last day!  Lots of excitement and anticipation for the conclusion of our cross country ride.  It seems to have gone so quickly!  Many family and friends came to greet us as we rode in the last six miles to St. Augustine two by two with police escort.  Dave drove from Minneapolis, and it was so good to see him!  After the tire-dipping ceremony we had a picnic with everyone.  Then it was our last ride - the three miles to the hotel. 

Total miles: 3,180

4-28-15 Perry to High Springs, FL 76 miles

We are getting close to the end of our journey. Only two more days.   

Our ride today seemed easy since the roads were smooth and flat.  It was raining when we started out, but after a couple of hours we only had overcast skies.  As long as there was no thunderstorms, we ride in the rain.  After all, it is only water, right?
