Day 2 BBBB Ride

Day 2 BBBB ride done! Everyone rode well and we were able to finish just before it started raining! Hooray!! In Tarboro tonight and the final leg to New Bern tomorrow.

A little over 100 miles today. 200+ miles ridden with 100+ more to go.

Lunch was at a small spot at 57 miles. The BBQ sandwich and hush puppies I ordered hit the spot. Desert was my favorite chocolate cupcakes! We ride to eat!!

We saw a first todayÖ.a pickup truck was ďtowingĒ a horse. Truck was moving slowly with a horse in tow!!

Weíre rotating 2 mile pulls so with 10 riders the pulls donít come around too often. Plus we ride at the slowest riders speed so itís a really comfortable pace.

It was raining too hard to go to the local brewery tonight. But there was a Mexican restaurant across the street so we swapped margaritas for beer.

Coming soon!

Lunch!

Good food

Waiting on our lunches

Margaritas!

The gang

Good food!
