|The bike shop near my hotel|
At Bike Beat in the morning, I met a customer, Bill, from the San Francisco bay area. He was assembling his bike, which he had shipped there from California. He is here to ride the TransAmerica Trail, like me, and will be spending tomorrow night in Williamsburg. Bill told me that yesterday he met three English guys who are also about to ride the TransAm to Oregon. As expected, I will not be alone on the road.
My plan is to set out tomorrow. Andrew suggested that I take Route 17 to Yorktown, where my maps begin, but to wait until after 9am when traffic volumes should reduce. From Yorktown, I will continue to Williamsburg. Whether I go further, and if so, how far, depends on how well I have recovered from the fatigue of the journey from Australia and the disorientation of the 14 hour clock change. It's forecast to rain tomorrow, as it did today, with temperatures up to 22C.
