Number 9

Hurrah! Crossed the line into Florida this morning – our ninth US state and the last one on our journey. Also saw dolphins in the river from two bridges, which gave us both a thrill.

State line number nine

So, only about 500 miles to go to Tampa and the finish line for this leg of our journey. Luckily our bodies are still holding up pretty well – my left knee is protesting a bit and Carolyn’s got a leg muscle that’s giving her a few problems.

But more worryingly, my beloved Brooks saddle seems to be developing a split in the leather! Really hope it lasts until Tampa.



  1. Duct tape!

    • Yeah. That was my plan. Find a hardware store tomorrow and wrap it tight! (Might give me a bit of extra padding too.)
