Day 31 Stretching for the Atlantic Madison – Benson, NC 135 miles

A hot day of cycling under the late summer sun. There were a surprising number of hills that tested my tired legs. I was also surprised by how pleasant the Piedmont secondary roads are for cycling. I finally saw my first cyclists in a long time; the last one was in Kansas. I find it remarkable how few bicyclists I have bumped into on the trip.

The United States is stunning for its size and diversity. Maybe shortly I will be able to say that I saw its full breadth in a difficult but rewarding fashion.
