Florida to Vermont – Summer 2007

Day 8 – Saturday July 14th.

On Saturday morning in NYC, the traffic is light. I rode 42nd street west across Manhattan, through Time Square, and into the Midtown Tunnel which takes you under the Hudson River to New Jersey .

I was on my way to Gettysburg PA. There was a bikefest going on there today and I thought that I would check it out. I-95 south led to I-78 West which I stayed on all the way to Harrisburg, then PA 15 south to Gettysburg . Well, the bikefest was, IMO, somewhat of a non-event, but Gettysburg was beautiful and very moving. I spent several hours in the museum and walking the grounds.

Late in the afternoon, I got back on 15 south to Frederick MD, then I-270 to I-495 which is the loop around our nation’s Capital. Finally I reached I-95 and at that point it was just a matter of racking up the miles so that I could be home in time to get to work on Monday. I stopped riding around 11:00 pm near the North Carolina/South Carolina border, found a motel room and called it a day.
