Cycle NC Day 2

Cycle NC Day 2, Hickory to Spencer....about 70 miles and not very hilly. Lots of familiar roads weve ridden a lot over time as well. We went close to my house so an area I know extremely well. Beat the darn luggage truck again.

Cloudy skies today which was nice!!! But super humid which we are accustomed to riding in.

We are camping at the Transportation Museum in Spencer tonight. You can put up a tent anywhere there is dirt/grass. Anyone up for Thomas the Tank Engine???

One of my meal stops on longer rides is very close to the campsite so enjoying a nice lunch. Its where

Crossing Lake Norman.

A man made lake developed by my former employer to generate electricity.

Part of the train museum in the background

A depot that was relocated from a nearby community. I ride over the tracks where it used to sit but I never knew it was there at one time.

The inside of the historic library. I hated to ask if she was the original librarian?!?!?

Brings back memories of having breakfast with my son at Thomas the Tank Engine at the museum.

A small one room library.

A good local restaurant
the pigs are if that gives you a hint as to the type food they serve.

Tomorrow we head to Siler City and cross another large local lake!!
