Great ride today mostly on the Virginia Capital Trail. The paved trail runs from Jamestown right into downtown Richmond. We were about 4 miles out of downtown and still in farmland. Things quickly changed to a busy urban bike trail. We turned on to downtown streets riding uphill to our hotel in rush hour traffic.
Lots of Revolutionary war markers so far. This is the first one I have seen from the Civil War. Pat and I are going to be fighting the battle of sore bottom.
Thanks so much your comments and interest our trip. We have enjoyed reading all of them.
