We’ve now pedaled almost 3,500 miles since departing Seattle on June 24th and we’re spending our final night in the Rig at the Minuteman Campround west of Boston. Tomorrow is Olivia’s birthday and the final day isn’t coming soon enough. The mental exhaustion has been immense, particularly as we navigated the winding congested roads coming into the Boston suburbs today.
Yesterday, as we pedaled from Vermont, into New Hampshire, and finally Massachusetts we climbed 4,400′ on our 68-mile ride, second in vertical only to Going To The Sun in Glacier National Park! Yeah, we’re exhausted and our butts are sore.
Tomorrow we ride down the Charles River into downtown Boston. Olivia is excited to visit Make Way For Ducklings before we ride the final segment south to Marshfield where we’ll dip the front wheel of the tandem in the Atlantic at Green Harbor. A huge party is planned, and we couldn’t be more excited.
