78 Mile Bicycle Ride – North Carolina to Virginia and Back

And so today I set out on another mega bicycle ride. I rode from my house up familiar roads to near Moyock, North Carolina and into Chesapeake, Virginia then to southern Virginia Beach. I cut through the southern Virginia Beach countryside on several roads, ultimately ending up on Princess Ann Road. I followed it south all the way back into North Carolina and to the Knotts Island, Currituck Sound Ferry port.

I reached the ferry port at mile 56 on my ride. After a pleasant (and free) 45 minute ride on the ferry across the Sound, I pedaled another 22 miles through the North Carolina coastal countryside and back home.

Here are photos of some of the scenery and places that I saw as I rode. It was a beautiful day and a good time was had by this now tired bicycle rider.
