Today was a wonderful day with some actual tailwind...rather than the daily gale force headwinds that we've been having regularly in our east to west journey. Unfortunately, my guess is that this tailwind might be the reason that the weather forecast for tomorrow includes thunderstorms.
The first part of the ride was on very low-traficked roads going thorugh vinehards and some residential areas. Nice. Then, getting onto State Rt 5/PA Bicycle Rt 517, we had good shoulder with relatively light traffic, except for when we were approaching Erie PA, when there was increased traffic. Through the worst of the trafficked areas, there was some bicycle/pedestrian path, so it wasn't bad.
Upon getting into OH, the nice road shoulder immediately disappeared. This was on US Rt 20, which had light traffic.
