My husband and I left home for Kentucky on Friday (way back on May 22nd) morning. We had about 600 miles of driving ahead of us. What a great guy, he drove most of the trip. Since I was a passenger for so long I tried to get some pictures. Most of them didn’t turn out so well since we were going 70 mph.
So many mountains in WV! When we finally got to Kentucky I missed the sign. I only got “Wel” for the Welcome to Kentucky.
We arrived at our hotel late according to B. Check-in was at 3 and we arrived around 4:30; late. We unloaded, B relaxed after a lot of driving and I went to Georgetown College to get my registration packet and shop at the mini Expo. I bought socks, Sword berry sport drink mix, a cap and some Gu. I went back to the hotel, got my gear ready for the ride and we both relaxed and went to sleep early.
I got up early and rode to the start. The suggested start time for the century was 8am, but I left around 7:30 so I didn’t have to rush. The plan for this trip was to ride with two of my regular biking friends from home. They had been in KY since Wednesday but I managed to miss them at the registration pick-up (we were late). They planned to do the metric century on Saturday and tried to get me to do that one too. I made my mind up a while back that I was doing the full century and I didn’t give in; I would ride with them Sunday.
I rode by myself for a while then met a small group that invited me to ride with them. They were really nice people, from Kentucky, but I can’t remember all their names. I stuck with them for 50-60 miles, through several rest stops. I finally went on my own because I didn’t want to spend so much time stopped at the rest areas.
Four months to update this, but more to come. Dancing in the streets, another ride with friends this time and a long drive back to PA.
