A Little Bit Nervous

PORTLAND, MAINE

This morning I was in Portland, Maine. It was a beautiful day for a ride and I rode out to the Portland Headlight.



But not before passing a statue of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of "Paul Revere's Ride." Longfellow was born in Portland.

This is my last day on the flats before tomorrow's cruel ride. It was a 20 mile ride just to keep the legs loose.


Looking out to the Atlantic Ocean. The Portland Headlight is just to the left of this frame.




I went out through downtown Portland and crossed this bridge but came back via Broadway and a bike/rail trail where I snapped this photo.

Tomorrow's ride: To say that's I'm nervous would be, well, correct. It's such a brutal climb.

She demands more detail about times and distances and places and weather reports. You have the beginning of a major fan club. Ron
