Day 30 - 121 Mi to Liverpool, NY

Incredibly another beautiful day of sunshine and no rain.  In 30 days we have had only one day with just a small amount of rain.  The temp at the start was in the high 60's and humidity was high.  The first 80 miles of the ride was relatively flat while the last 40 miles was hilly with some long rollers which equated to 4,800 feet of climbing.  My quads were sore the last couple of days but they felt better today.

Detour I was able to walk around :)

I basically rode solo for the entire 121 miles today and finished with an average speed of 17.9 mph.  I road solo due to a road closure that I was able to get through while others took a detour.  The roads in New York have been the best we seen with very wide shoulders.  We passed by two very beautiful lakes today, Seneca Lake and Onondaga Lake and road on a very nice bike path in Onondaga Lake Park. 

Seneca Lake
It's sometime hard to believe that we have come this far in this short amount of time.  We went over 3000 miles today and all are looking forward to the last few days.  The last two days in VT, NH will be hilly ones, but the adrenalin will be running high to complete the mission and reach the Atlantic Ocean.    

Here are some more photos from today:

As I was taking the picture of this turtle crossing the road, a truck ran over it. 

After almost 3000 miles finally a Dunkin Donuts.
