Again the temps were in the 70s, and the humidity was low. Dave said he feels like this was the best day ride he had on the tour. There were many rolling hills, and he was either peddling up or coasting down. He could work up a momentum on the down side to get most of the way up the next hill. The net effect was very little sweat. Dave is enthusiastic about how beautiful this area is. We see the Blue Ridge range ahead of us, and we have been warned that there are some challenging climbs ahead.
Pete had another animal attack - a dog this time. The dog got the worst of it. Pete has a 12 inch long special dog defense. The toe on his biking shoe was planted firmly into the dog's shoulder which gave the dog pause.
It started to come back for another shot, when its owner called him off.
We could not locate any campsites in Daleville, so it's another motel night.
