15 July 1989

64 miles Pippa Passes, KY to Breaks, VA

Up at 6:30, coffee and very sugary dunkin' sticks with Charlotte.
On the road by 7:30. We had a much less hilly ride than expected: two climbs in the morning, but gradual, not too steep and a fairly level stretch to Elkhorn City. Stopped in Elkhorn City at "Dairy Cheer - Home of the Smashburger" for an ice cream cone then started towards Breaks.

I had a flat tire West of Dorton.


Phil got slapped on the back by some jerk in a pick up. It happened while we were climbing a grade. It scared the crap out of Phil and really pissed us off. Imagine riding along trying to make your way up a hill and some car pulls up right beside you and the guy leans out and slaps you on the back! We got the license plate number from a couple who saw the incident. Phil talked to the state police and the said they will look for the guy.

Met Mom and Dad and the Strohms at Breaks. Ok meal in restaurant at the park.
