CC20 - Day 14

From Cincinnati, OH to London, KY – it was a lot of fun today. I picked a route that brought me through some beautiful countryside, for me reminiscent of middle European landscapes – lush, green, hilly, rich colors and great riding. 

I was lucky, that the weather held. For a while it looked like it would be raining, but it didn't – it cleared up a bit and the weather was great for riding. 

At some point I was heading into a very promising county:

It didn't hold that promise though ... ;-)

As I was riding one of the many single lane roads, I came upon this very peaceful cemetery in the middle of the forest.

The route took me on a lot of single lane backroads, some turned to hardpacked dirt and gravel for a few miles, it was fine though, no deep gravel or such, which I try to avoid when I'm so heavily packed and have the big cases on. 

Since I had a rather complicated route today, I wanted to try something new and to not just provide a screenshot, but a way to see the real map. Let me know if there are problems with it.

First the screenshot:

And then the actual map: 


Tomorrow is undecided yet, I might have to stay here in London, KY, since my right ear canal has become quite tender and is swollen. I'm not used to wearing ear plugs for so many hours a day. If this isn't significantly better tomorrow, I'll stay here another day and see whether it gets better.


  1. Moin Moin, Herr Neitzer! Gerade deine Posts gelesen. Hab das Gefühl, ich müsste auch gleich packen und los. Da haste aber schon ne Ecke Meilen geschrubbt. Wünsche dir viel Spaß und tolle Eindrücke auf deiner Tour. Pass gut auf dich auf!

    1. Danke Dir! Ja, es war schon eine ganze Menge bisher. Aber es war es wert.

  2. Hübsche Gegend, und so schön grün. Als ich mal beruflich in der Ecke war hat es viel geregnet und es war schwül warm.

    1. Es ging eigentlich – hier regnet es immer mal wieder und die Luftfeuchtigkeit ist hoch, aber sooo schlimm ist nicht. Ist nicht so warm, daher geht es.
