NYC to Florida – Day 17

Date: 7 May 2011
Woke up in: Wilmington, North Carolina
Fell asleep in: Kure Beach, North Carolina
Miles ridden today: 24.5
Total miles ridden so far: 899.5
Weather: Hot. So we went to the beach…

We really weren’t in the mood for cycling today. We fantasised about staying an extra day in Wilmington, but eventually managed to drag our reluctant selves out of bed and onto the bikes.

About silkakt

I'm a map addict. I nip out in my lunch break to go to the National Map Centre, just around the corner from where I work, to feed my habit. My fix normally costs £7.99 and comes in the form of an OS map, although I'm a big fan of Sustrans cycle maps, the Trailblazer walking guides and maps of the world too. And once I've got my new map, I start plotting - routes, adventures and an escape away from the office that I spend too much time in. Maps, quite simply, make the world a better and more exciting place.
