Yorktown is where the British and colonist ended the Revolutionary war. So it has significant historical importance to our country and hence our trip kicks off here.
We will dip our rear bicycle wheels in the Atlantic waters and head west from here.
The weather is going to get wet the next few days, and Jack (our leader) is figuring out a way of not having to pitch tents in rain. I like that in a leader!
Monday will be day heading out of town.
Today we met a Dutch couple – Ben, said he’d be riding along with us the next week or longer. Our fellow Dutch team member Jan Hindriks enjoyed meeting a fellow countryman.
