Day 8 – Buchanan to Blacksburg, VA – 55 miles
Day 9 – Rest Day Blacksburg, VA – 0 miles
Saturday morning cousins Jimmy and Elise drove from Raleigh, NC to Buchanan, VA to trade off riding with us, carrying our gear, and escorting us into Elise’s sister house in Blacksburg, VA. The weather was great with no wind and with our lighter bikes we nearly averaged some 15 mph with our heavy bikes and rolling hills into the Virgina Tech area. Not only supporting us in spirit but provided great Support and Gear (SAG), power gels, water, Gatorade, bananas, cliff bars, and even lunch at a brew house.
Once we made it into the Blacksburg area Ann and Dan treated us as their own kids and saw that we had the most easy going and relaxing rest weekend. We couldn’t think you more and I hope we can repay all of you for the hospitality if you ever make it out to any of our areas.
Thank You All SO MUCH!
