Day 55: Wedding Day in Gainesville

Yesterday morning, I rode a little over 10 miles from Juliane’s house in the northwest section of Gainesville to Ed’s house in the northeast of Gainesville. It was very foggy so I had to put lights on my bike.

I made it to Ed’s around 7:30 AM. This is the official destination of my bike tour from King of Prussia, PA. I was very glad that I made it safe and on time.

For the rest of the day, I hung out on the 5 acre property, helped Ed getting beer and ice, then enjoyed the wedding day. I had to take a nap in the late afternoon since I was tired, then I woke up again to enjoy the night. I ended up sleeping on Ed’s couch.
