Day 45, July 18: Christiansburg to Lexington, VA

Cool morning at 51 degrees to descend rolling hills to Lexington.  


Nice morning ride.  


Met Alex Hyman from Boston who just started her ride to Seattle. She just left Novartis and will go to  veternary school after she completes her journey.  She asked about the Kentucky dogs and I gave her my perspective.  


Coming into Lexington


Stonewall Jackson was buried here in 1863 after being shot by friendly fire. Robert E. Lee is also buried in Lexington in 1870. 

90 miles today. Onto the Blue Ridge Parkway and Charlottesville tomorrow.
