Day 18 Bardstown to Rough River Dam 82 miles


After resting in Bardstown yesterday we set off very early this morning to do a long ride which would normally be two days,Gerry is now 50 gms lighter due to a very severe hair cut !.First 30 miles took us through fine green forests ,horse farms and a factory making wooden barrells for the Bourbon industry, we arrived in Hogenville , the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, see photo.After that we rode through enormous fields of grass,corn and tobacco and a village called Madrid.The final 9 miles was up and down to Rough RIver Dam ,a man made lake built buy the us army corps back in 1955 .Today we crossed a time line so we had to put our watches back one hour,it was also our longest cycle so you can imagine how we felt when we ordered a beer only to be told we had entered a "dry" zone .So it was fizzy orange for us.

  1. Sorry about the dry counties, lads…Canada got the French, Australia got the convicts and the US got the Puritans. Their insidious influence remains with us today.

  2. The photos are fantastic and you’re both looking great. The rest day seems to have worked well judging by all the miles on day 18 – we’ll never keep up with you when you get back!

  3. hi lads love the pics and the updates
