Sunday 6/19/2016: Happy Father’s Day to all!! This was considered a short day 69 miles with 2400 ft of elevation climbs!! Rode all the way with Ron who has now been touring for 10 days and definitely getting stronger!! Again great weather with a slight tailwind but temps got to 92 by 1 pm. The afternoons do that out here which is a motivation to go harder in the early day hours!! We passed through Waterloo NY which is the 1866 birthplace of the official Memorial Day celebration. We passed by Seneca Falls where scenes from “Its a good life” were shot and got a Brief look at the Erie Canal Park and water way! Shot a video through a cool parkway in Camillus and got stopped by the red flashing lights and fast lowering RR gates of a long passing train– we consider that a forced rest stop! We had several chances to see The finger lakes in Geneva NY – beautiful area! And today we passed 3000 miles on our trip– 4 1/2 days of cycling left– the emotion is one of happiness and, sadness as well! On Wednesday, Kevin and I will be going by the home of A fellow who has been following our blogs, and has ALS. Hie disease stage is very severe and he is restricted to his bedroom– we hope to infuse a bit of our ride into his world– I think he will be infusing a real taste of ALS reality into ours even more.
