Today’s goal is to ride

There is something incredibly liberating about a day’s goal being to get from point A to point B aboard a bicycle.  All of a sudden riding for 80 miles or more, although still daunting, no longer seems impossible.  A slow and steady pace with healthy breaks will still make this goal accomplishable.  Given that, we stop along the way for snacks, for mini-golf, for carnival rides, for lots of pictures, and for really any other excuse that we might be able to find to explore a new area.
