Bicycling Across America 2017 – Day 26 – The End is Near

Today’s ride from Cordele to Metter, Georgia was 116 miles with 3,600 feet of climb. We had headwinds again and our average was slow at 13.9 mph. 

We started our ride a few minutes before sunrise.  We were on some busy roads roads today. This was our last normal day of riding. Today the ice cream gang stopped at DQ for our last ice cream together. It was a fun but a difficult 4 weeks. Tomorrow will be a short day and we will all ride in together.  

I was thinking of all the things I have seen over the last 26 days and all the friends I have made. In two days I will be back home  in Illinois. 

John had 6 flats today and 14 flats for the tour with one day left
