Day 30 Girard to Eureka 108 miles


We got a really early start this morning at 7-30 and headed out of Girard in the rain,the route started out on very poor concrete roads with very little road signs and a lot of pot holes,but at least they were flat and there was very little traffic.We had to take a dirt road de-tour into Chanute because of a bridge being replaced.We had a side wind as we went through Coyville where we stopped to have a chat with Joe and Pat who were just sitting there watching for someone to talk to,turns out that Pats mother was from Cork .There were hills as we climbed up to the Cross Timber State Park and into Toronto a place hard to describe but a very old place where time has stood still,they also have a seniors centre and a City Hall (see photos) from there we visited the Lizard lips cafe for apple pie and signing the bikers visitors book. The last 20 miles was on a very wide rolling main road and by the time we reached Eureka we had clocked up 108 miles .

Thank you all for the loads of comments we received yesterday,sorry we dont have time to reply to them but we do love to read them.

  1. 108 miles… Wow, congratulations!

  2. Hey Dave & Gerry, your doing well – looks like really exciting places, but I bet it beats coffee in castlebellingham – still having to do this with you know who…

  3. Very scenic little towns-has your impression of the US changed now that you’ve had a chance to visit rural America?

  4.

  5. Hi Dave & Gerry, I am well impressed with 108 miles yesterday. I did the 105k tour of Louth with Bernard & John on Sunday and felt the pain after it. Its great reading your daily blogs. Your well on the way now. Louis
