The purpose of the morning was two fold. One: enjoy the last remnants of my ride. Two: figure out a place to meet my cousin Brandon and my cousin-in-law Ashley. Both goals were achieved. They live in Cape Charles and came down to pick me up. Brandon even accepted an invitation to ride the last fifteen miles with me. We rode on a paved bike path through First Landing State Park that eventually turned into a dirt path. Today it was a mud path. It was fun to get a little muddy. By this time, the sun came out and we rode down the beach to meet Ashley near the big statue of King Neptune. That is where we had our tire dipping ceremony.
I dropped Gladiator off at a bike shop to get shipped home and then the three of us went out for my birthday dinner. This is definitely a birthday for the books.
Here is Brandon and me riding bikes:
Here is me at the end:
