Yorktown before heading out. Sara did some research on accomodations and found you can stay for free in a church owned house. I thought it would be bare bones, but that is not the case at all. Sheets on the beds and dishes in the cupboards. Amazingly kind.
I'm billing this trip as the affirmation of human kindness trip.
Four of us rode out to get groceries and we had a chance to compare equipment and styles. There is one recumbent (a bike which you sit on like a chair and pedal out in front of you), two Bike Fridays, one hybrid (like a mountain bike) and two traditional road bikes. Five people are carrying panniers (bike bags) and two have trailers.
