Elevation

Upperville - Broadway

As mentioned in our previous post, we saw some elevation in the landscape recently. (Un)fortunately this was the case again today, when leaving one valley to enter another. Our bikes plus gear weigh approximately 35kg each. That´s quite a lot - especially uphill. The difference to the roadbike I used to ride back in Austria is striking. Berni did a great job today, not giving up, fighting till we reached the top!

The  ride downhill was marvelous and compensated for all the effort: Broad roads in perfect condition, hardly any traffic, epic scenery, almost flying towards the Westcoast at 70+ km/h topspeed. Luv it!

We reached Broadway in the early afernoon and decided to go a little further to Harissonburg to call for the night.

Looking forward to discover a new face of Virginia tomorrow!
