I would like to say that it was beautiful out, nothing out of the ordinary happened and we made great time... but that would be a lie. We got turned around over and over, had to do some roadside repair and it rained all day long.
Lucky for us when we were exhausted and 22 miles from the camp site at 5:30 in a cafe in Providence, the guy at the register recognized us as people on a bike tour and invited us into his home. His girlfriend even came and picked us and our bikes up in a pickup tuck. Rejuvenated after a warm shower, delicious vegan tacos, great company and touring stories. Thank you Danielle and Dale!
Despite a not entirely ideal beginning getting to know and love "bike tour" and everything that it means. Hope to meet more awesome folks in our travels and pay forward the kindness of strangers.
