Day 27 – Center Ossipee, NH to Bath, ME – 85 miles

Nothing better than a hot breakfast over the campstove in the morning after a cool night in the tent.  I slept very well.

Much of the beginning of the day was easy as the terrain flattened out and the pedaling was easy.  The weather today was spot on.  It couldn’t have been any better.

New state!  New Hampshire was nice.

It is sad that Maine is the last state of the tour.  That means the miles are winding down, and before too long I’ll be on my way back.  It just inspired me to enjoy every last mile.

A river I crossed today

I stopped in Standish for lunch and ate at the Main Street Grill.  The wonderful waitress that served my food was interested in my ride and we had great conversation. She mentioned to take a look at Sebago Lake that was just up the road. It was along my route so I took a picture:

Hit some nasty hills today just west of Freeport, ME.  Some of the roads were pretty poor today as well.  Hopefully my bike can continue to hold up.  I only have about 110 miles to go.

Just before reaching my hosts in Bath while going up a hill, I noticed a lady with car trouble so I stopped and asked to make sure everything was fine.  She mentioned, through the smoke coming from the engine, that she was having issues before.  After talking a few minutes and ensuring that she had a cell phone and had a plan, I continued on.

Once again I encountered fabulous hosts.
