Day 24 Richmond, IN to Marysville, OH 105 miles
Another state bites the dust.
We finished off Indiana this morning and entered Ohio. We’ll be crossing Ohio for the next few days.
Today was a relatively standard day … 105 miles, but cool and overcast. It had rained during the night and we did get a few drops on us during the day, but we basically stayed dry. We had eaten breakfast at the hotel starting at 5:30 AM, then left by 6:30. It was a nice, quiet ride through country roads. Wind was okay today, only in our face for a few miles and a bit of a tailwind for part of the time. We were in the hotel by about 1:30, then found where the DQ was and headed there for a quick snack.
After having Shane adjust the front derailer and attending rap, we went to Philly’s for dinner. It was the restaurant right next to the hotel. They had all you can eat Spaghetti and 19 or 20 of us went there. We overwhelmed them. The service was very, very slow … I’m sue we would have eaten more if they had been faster. As it was we were there for 2 ½ hours. I only had two helpings of spaghetti, but then I had a great desert to top it off … four scoops of ice cream, topping, on a brownie. Pretty good !
