TRIP 2001

Update #25 - Aug 11th
Cincinatti, OH - 5740 miles (9184 KM)



The ride from Celina to Cincinatti went okay. It seems that the Ohio River was pulling me along. The heat wasn't really bad this section. There were just a couple of days in the nineties. The terrain was mostly flat except for the last sixty or so miles to Cincinatti.

For lodging, I stayed at churches in Troy and Lebanon. They were pretty good. The church in Troy even had a shower for me to use. There were pretty good couches for me to sleep on and I didn't have to climb into my sleeping bag.

There was pretty neat scenery to see while riding through the farmland of Southern Ohio. From downtown Dayton to Miamisburg, I rode along the paved bikepath next to the Miami River. The trail lasted about fifteen miles and it was well maintained really nice.

I've been staying with new friends in the NE part of Cincinatti. The wife is on the board of the Cincinatti Habitat for Humanity affiliate. She gave birth to their second son just eight weeks ago.

Tomorrow after church, I should be crossing the Ohio River into Kentucky. It's hard to believe that Kentucky will be my twentieth state for the year. I am planning to check out the Christian Appalachian Project to see how they compare to Habitat for Humanity. After Kentucky, I'll be heading south to Baldwin, Louisiana before turning Eastward to Georgia. I should be out a little more than a month.

My health has been pretty good. The only problem is that I've been waking up pretty early. I'm having a bit of a time getting used to being in the Eastern Time Zone again.
