Started our journey at Yorktown, cycled through historic battlegrounds, woodlands, plantations and rich pastures. Some of the roadways were just for cyclists. Most of the places we went through were very small, in fact when we asked a person how far we were from Williamsburg he said “You are in it “.  We are sleeping in a church in Willis/ Glendale tonight, my miraculous medal must be working.

  3. Hi Dave and Gerry,
    this is Paivi calling… I’m staying in a hotel in Ashland for tonight. Holiday Inn or something like that. No churhes available here… But I found a bicycle shop nearby, at England Street, and they sell dog’s spray there! So, remembering your stories about the dogs in Tennesee, I just had to buy one spray…
    All the best for you, may the wind be at our back… maybe we meet again tomorrow or some other day! I’ll be following your blog!

    Paivi
