Old Flying Farts Bicycling Club
Ashland, VA to Williamsburg, VA

Todays ride was filled with historical monuments related to the Civil War.  As our ride took us from Ashland, VA to Williamsburg, VA we saw many different battlefields and a few cemetaries all related to the fighting that occured during the battle of the states. 
As our last full day of riding, Don and I discussed the trip we were completing and what we each liked/disliked about the trip.  We have seen many things, met many different people and have shared an expereince that most will never have the chance too do in thier lifetime.  Today's ride was the chance to relive some of the highlights of the trip.  We rode together for the 77 miles and met our support team of Rod and Sal in Williamsburg.  My dad who had met us in Ashland, had already come into town and scouted out the area for us. 
Once in the hotel and cleaned up, we set off to dinner and to explore colonial Williamsburg.  Dinner was good but we did not know that Colonial Williamsburg shuttered their doors at 6pm.  So we missed out on that experience.  Back at the hotel, we organized, cleaned and prepped for Tuesday's ride into Yorktown, VA and got the van ready for the trip home.  After we finish our ride on Tuesday, it is back to the hotel, showers and b-fast , and then the 700 mile trip home. 
I look forward to the end of the trip but at the same time will miss what I have been doing for the last fourty three days.   I will not miss the hotel breakfasts, lunchables, fig newtons, or McDonalds that seemed to be an everyday part of life for us!
