Ten States Down, Five to Go!
Glenn took off by 8 this AM from the bike/jog trail along the Westside
Highway in lower Manhattan. The ride north in Manhattan was one of the most
relaxing for Glenn since he didn't have to consult his cue sheets or worry about
what turns to make or how bad the traffic would be. The fun ended when
he got lost in the Bronx. Not a good place to get lost! The ride continued
through Pelham, New Rochelle, Mamaraneck, Harrison and Port Chester.
After leaving NY, it was a long day up the east coast of Connecticut through
Stamford, Darien, Southport, Fairfield and into New Haven. Glenn even
caught a glimpse of the Long Island Sound at points. The sun was shining
most of the day but some big gray clouds caused some concern. No rain
ever appeared, thankfully! Glenn didn't make it to the hotel where I have
been waiting for him since 4 PM.....His cousin Michael Alevy, who
lives in New Haven, rescued him from the dark, unfamiliar
roads just five miles from the hotel at 7:30. We aren't used to being
this far east. It gets dark much earlier than in Atlanta!
Stats for today are pretty incredible for an "old guy"!
8 hrs, 22 min of riding time but 11 hrs and 10 min in total
99.52 miles...almost a century
4958 calories expended....we better carb load tonight!
4425 ft. elevation....not big hills just a lot of gentle up and down.
Answer will be revealed in the next blog post.

Mamaraneck, NY! I had no idea I was anywhere near
his route! Surprised both of us! We couldn't have
planned it any better!

our long-time friend, Marilyn Kneller-Rimsky, who was meeting me
for lunch and for a much needed catch-up session!
Very cute downtown area
