Some of the final milestones were achieved today. Reaching our home state of Massachusetts was a great feeling. Climbing over the Berkshires was also completed and we reached the shores of the Connecticut River in West Springfield. I rode 98 miles today, here's the link to the map of today's ride.
We took a couple of video's at the Lebanon Valley Speedway for my good frield Mark, the ride commissioner, who is a racing fan. Claire is correct, we did have an old Pontiac Grand Prix.
I went over "Jacob's Ladder" which was one of the first mountain roads ever built (1910), planned to cross the Berkshires. The Berkshires were definately a challenge but I was able to climb over them and enjoy a many mile downhill on the east side. The area is extremely beautiful.
I'm estimating that I'll be coming over the Bourne bridge in the early afternoon (1:00 to 2:00) on Monday, Memorial Day. NOTE: This is an estimate and is subject to change based on how tomorrow's ride goes. I'll provide an updated estimate tomorrow evening
