WILLIAMSBURG, VA--Mike Moye, intrepid as ever, rode up Richmond Ave. this afternoon straight to the Super 8 Motel where we are staying. We worked on our bikes for a while...made some equipment adjustments and repacked a few items. He brought my MacBook with him.
I still can't get all the software working on it. I used to have IPhoto and now can't find it. I'll try to use Preview and Image Capture to bring up the visual highlights until I figure things out more fully.
Tomorrow Mike and I ride to Yorktown to dip our wheels in the York River to officially start the beginning of the Transamerica ride. We will then return to Williamsburg, spending the night in our motel room before heading west through Jamestown, Charles City, and Glendale. There is supposed to be an Adventure Cycling group starting out tomorrow as well. Tonight we went out to eat at Sal's across the street. That makes 3 times in 5 days I have eaten supper there. Baked Ziti, Eggplant Relatoni(?), and Chicken Victor. Damned good! Of course, eating with Mike, the spumoni was the highlight of the meal.
This is the journal of a transamerica bicycle trip. Jon Knudsen (aka Johnny_Mango) intends to ride the 4200 miles or so from Yorktown, Virginia to Astoria, Oregon. His buddy and riding partner on a multitude of bike adventures is Mike (Mike Biker) Moye. Mike can't leave his accounting business for 3 months to do the trip. Nevertheless, he is helping get Johnny started off on the right foot, or pedal, by riding the first 500 miles or so with him. Then that rascal Johnny will be on his own.
