Le Tour de U.S. 2014 | Day 42

August 14, 2014


Woke to beautiful weather! Trevor also had a flat so he changed that and then we hit the road. Bolze got a flat about 10 km before State College. We had once again managed to wind up on the interstate again. We found a good bike shop in State College called, wait for it, "The Bike Shop". Luckily for me they had my brake pads in stock and we were back on the road quickly. We had lunch at Subway and then took bike routes for the remainder of the day. It took us through Amish country again and we came upon a couple of carriages and a really cool little town called Centre Hall. We took a short break after CH and two cyclists came along and we had a short chat. They work at Penn State and ride the area regularly. I made the mistake of not asking their names but I did give them the web address. If you're reading this, it was nice meeting you. We had a decent tailwind today so even with our extended stop in College State we pulled into Lewisburg at 4:45. we went to 2 motels before we found a room. There is a baseball tournament in town so most places are sold out. I am happy we have a room. Our Domino's pizza has just arrived so that brings an end to this journal :)

Bolze especially likes to get a flat when we've accidentally turned onto the interstate.
