Carrollton, KY to Cincinnati, OH (69 miles)

We woke up to rain this morning an very nearly zipped up our sleeping bags an rolled back over. It's a good thing we didn't though since it turned out to be one of the most beautiful days we've had so far! By the time we finished our scrambled eggs the blue skies were poking through and the sun wasn't far behind.

We made our way into Cincinnati via the Purple People Bridge, a pedestrian and cyclist only bridge. Such a treat! A great way to enter into yet another state, Ohio. It is becoming very clear that we are no longer in the "south". There is a Dunkin Donuts on every corner and sandwiches are referred to as "grinders".

Tonight we are staying with another warmshowers host. We had an amazing dinner of pork roast, veggies, couscous, salad and last but not least Cincinnati's famous Graeter's ice cream and homemade cookies.

After dinner Joe and I both did a little work on our bikes. We both got a punctured tire today and Joe had to replace a cable.



  1. There may be Dunkin Donuts and grinders, but no Brigitte or poo boys!!!!!!

  2. That is supposed to read: no beignets or poo boys.
    This thing keeps trying to correct my spelling.
