Day 4-Richmond IN to Marysville OH.  Another beautiful day to ride a bicycle in America.  Today's trek was a mere 104 miles but with all the construction it resulted in anywhere from 109-114.  My bike computer registered 112.  Now folks, that's a lot of miles for an old timer like me.  Especially since we averaged over 17 mph for the entire trip.  The weather was in the high 80's but we had a favorable wind.  Describing the scenery was be an exercise in redundancy since it was mile after mile of corn and bean fields.  We encountered two major road blockages.  The first one we were able to take our bikes across and help each other up the embankment.  That officially does not disqualify anyone from attaining EFI.  At the second one, there was no bridge and to go across would involve trying to navigate an interstate route.  Wasn't going to happen.  So, the support staff googled a detour which increased the mileage to the numbers above.  This particular post will be rather short since I am in recovery mode and we bike 97 miles tomorrow with some severe climbs.  Looking forward to it.

Construction detour-notice the equipment.  The only one to use for such projects.
