We are in our favorite little cabin in a small private campground in Spring Valley, about 65 miles north of Cincinnati. We pedaled almost 63 miles today an got here after dark at 9:30 pm with headlights (and tail lights) blazing. It was really a different perspective riding the trail through the woods after dark. Just as we were leaving Xenia tonight, on our last stage of 8 or 9 miles to the campground, we stopped to call the campground owner to let him know we were on our way and would be there within the hour. We figured we’d get ther right at Night fall. Carol hung up with Walter, the owner, and we saddled up to ride off into the sunset, but whoops! Carol has a flat front tire!
Luckily, my flat changing skills were up to par as I recently had some flats back at home. Still though, it was a half an hour to change it out. Not bad when you consider digging out the tools, pannier removal, getting the rim out from the rack, etc.
Tomorrow is supposed to be hot and humid. We don’t like hot or humid, so that may impinge upon our progress. Cincinnati is within striking distance for us tomorrow, but we may need to hide from the mid day heat.
