41.9 miles Camp Bethel, VA to Otter Creek, VA
Up at 6:30; flat ride to Buchanan. Checked our mail, not too much there.
Had a good breakfast at R&G's in Buchanan, recommended by the sweet lady we met at the P.O.
We decided to go up on the Parkway and I'm so glad we did. So far the climbs have been gradual. We hiked to Sharp Top from Peaks of Otter - 3 mile round trip.
Started biking again at 4:15. We had about a 10 mile climb and a 12 mile downhill (11 miles in 26 minutes)! Neat locks at Otter Creek Visitor Center. Good cheese burger at restaurant, now camped at Otter Creek for $7.
