|Pete Rice and I|
At the Rochambeau Statue in
horizon. I started thinking about Rochambeau and his troops in 1781 and their voyage across the Atlantic. Wow.
Pete Rice met me at the ferry as the there is no easy way to cross the bridges into Newport...bikes are not allowed. :( But, I am glad I called Pete who turned out to be my tour guide for about 3 hours! It was nice to have him there to show me more options for the route to Providence. Pete is a local cyclists, who is retired Navy, but in origially from North Dakota.
We had a great time doing recon for the route and I loved learning about the history of New Port, which is a gorgeous town!
Tonight I will explore Newport! Tomorrow I get interviewed by the Newport Daily News at 9am and off at 10!
Hope you follow. Also, Having trouble downloading pic onto the Cycling W3R facebook page, so you should friend me directly on facebook to my personal page. I will still update on the other too.
Bye for now!
Here is a video form yesterday on Martha's Vineyard! Enjoy!
