Rensselear, NY to Lee, MA (48 miles)

Last night we stayed with a really interesting warmshowers host named Alen. He has travelled many countries by bicycle and shared his stories and pictures with us over a delicious dinner. He fueled us up with pancakes this morning and we set out ready to climb up to our final state border!

We finally made it to Massachusetts!!!!! It was a tough day of riding, the Berkshires are very hilly and it was pretty hot but we were rewarded with friends!!! I was jumping for joy as we rode down Randi and Brendan's driveway. Even Laura drove up from Connecticut to visit for the night. Randi cooked us a Mexican feast while Owen entertained us and Silas drooled on us. :) Joe and I went out for a very yummy ice cream and now we are tucked into bed.

It feels so good to be back in familiar territory (even though that means riding along side the worst drivers in the country)!


  1. Worst drivers in the country????? You must be in Florida

  2. Welcome back to MA, you guys!!! What an exciting way to see the country! Enjoy some down time now.

  3. We miss you guys already!!! :) xoxo
