This bike ride between Indiana and Ohio was fantastically flat with more corn and soybeans. You can imagine how thrilled we were to see a field of oats to give a sense of variety.
The roads are now becoming more populous as we head East. There are more cars on the roads, more potholes, ruts and objects that take a high degree of focus as we ride. Our ride leader, Charlton DuRant from VeloSante, tries to start each day out with a gentle reminder about how important it is that we keep our guard up and use best rider practices. As we ride in the same lane as the car traffic, it is important to know when to “take the lane” and when to keep to the side. Safety is an important part of our coast-to-coast bicycle ride, so we have the highest regard for our rider safety — every day!
