Day 24 / Elizabeth City, NC to Suffolk, VA

Another beautiful day for cycling, temps in the high seventies and low eighties, with little wind. We cycled through some lovely country roads, with lots of wheat fields, horses and cows. On the whole, the roads were smooth and the bicycle gods were kind. We left North Carolina and entered Virginia this afternoon. That means margaritas with dinner. As well, we passed the halfway point as far as mileage (1291 miles). This trip is passing by very quickly.

Today my new saddle arrived. I will try a 55 mile ride on it into Williamsburg tomorrow. For those who don’t ride, new saddles are a bit like new shoes…you don’t want to walk 20 miles in a new pair of shoes, the first time you try them on. Tomorrow I will pack an extra saddle, just in case the new one does not live up to its advertisement…no break in pe
