Day 27: Metter to Tybee Island GA: 86.9 miles, 15.7 mph, 961 feet of climbing, 5198 calories
It’s not the destination, it’s the journey. Bull; today it was about the destination. Traffic was heavy as we approached Savannah. So we just pedaled, first to get to a Starbucks, then to the rendezvous, then to the Atlantic. But once you reach the destination, you realize it’s about the people. I was delighted to ride with Bob and Gary today. There were many jokes, hugs, pats on the back. I have been part of an exceptional community.
Ultimately, it is about the process. I have been outside of time. Each day has been a simple matter of pedaling until the job is done. Sometimes it has hurt, sometimes it has been frustrating, sometimes it has stretched my sense of what I could do. In the end, I am left with joy and a deep sense of peace.
And tomorrow life starts anew.
