Day 45: Rochester to Syracuse, NY

93 miles today in heat and humidity...the last ride over 90 miles. We followed the Erie Canal, about 20 miles on a bike path (pictured). The path was gorgeous, through small villages along the canal. The rest of the trip along the main road was less interesting, unless you include the unisex hair salon in a town sadly named Weedsport - where a lady cut my hair. Soon after I had my fourth flat tyre. We rolled into the hotel, hot, sweaty, and thirsty. Katie had no idea her family would be sitting in the lobby when she arrived....surprise!
