Biking the TransAm 2016 Blog
2 Wheels, 6 Months, 1 Adventure!!!!

I just laid in my cozy Alpinlite Western Mountaineering Sleeping Bag. Listening to the birds. Enjoying waking up slowly…..

The Boonville Presbyterian Church hosted Trans America route bicyclists.  Since I am one of the first bikers, the water was still turned off…. I packed up and biked to the Bus Stop Diner to wash up and have a bite to eat…

There was 9 hills and 50 miles to bike and still some hills that I had to stop and catch my breath on … My legs are feeling better while pedaling in the seat but when I stand up on the pedals, I need more time for the muscles to develope..

The route has been well marked and I have only been off route a few times. I look at the map when I cross every road.. Usually there is a sign marking the way….  Outside of Berea the Map and description noted taking a right at 1107….The sign on the road pointed left…. I rode left till I found where 1107 continued on to the left and checked the map again… Wrong Turn… Maybe I should follow the map… I took pictures to notify Adventure Cycling and cyclists behind me…

Maya is a Warm Showers Host and gave me directions to her home. Shower, Laundry and a short list of tasks to complete in town..

We enjoyed a delicious meal and it was time for rest dreaming of touring the town of Berea, Ky.
