Erie Canal Bike Trip – Day Five (final post)

We made it! 378 miles over five days! I haven't done an extended bike trip like this in several years, and I love getting out in God's Creation and taking my mind off of the daily things that can consume it. It is very freeing and relaxing for my mind – but very taxing on my body.  Well worth the vacation days!

Here is a final video (15 seconds) of what it "feels" like to go downhill at about 33 mph.  The larger number is the speed. The smaller number was mileage for the day.  We were coming into a town for our lunch break (45 miles).
