Today, though only 40 miles, finally felt like I have already really travelled far on my bike–nearly 400 miles. The terrain changed, today, rolling green hills, lots of tress, two steep, but short climbs. and some fast downhills. It was a great big yippee day on the bike. Perhaps it is because Illinois is behind us, the first state is complete, the first week is done, too, and the hellacious headwinds are gone, for now.
