Day 45 Bedford to Gettysburg, Pa – 102 Miles – Through the Pennsylvania Mountains

31 Jul

day45

MapMyRide Stats:  102 Miles  |  Time:  9:26  |  Speed 10.8 mph

Another rain-free, cool summer day – perfect cycling weather.  We stopped several times to rest along the way on this century bicycle ride.  There were several well needed breaks along the way including a wonderful home cooked meal.  Tony, an alumni of The Big Ride Across America packed up his garden’s bounty and prepared a gourmet meal including grilled burgers and chicken.  He carried in his own barbecue grill and delivered fresh salads, flowers and an abundance of deliciousness from his garden.  We met his son Ryan who will be attending Penn State in the Fall.  Thanks Tony!
