Day 20 – September 5th: Jeff, KY to Manchester KY- 70 km (+ 40 km hitchhiking)

So I am out of the worst, and back to relatively flat roads, but my GPS is still giving me trouble. And so it is that I find myself in front of a Higway entrance, with a sign saying “No bicycles”…I hesitate, but the idea of having to turn back, find internet, map out an alternate itinerary and go the extra mile is not very appealing. And cause it is a Sunday and there’s close to no traffic, I go for it. Barely half an hour later, a couple stops in their Pick-up truck and offers a ride. I hesitate but wisely choose to cut the crap and get off the Highway. Which is a sound choice as there is a police car a couple of miles down the road. And in truth it is one hell of an ugly, hot, climbing stretch that I am spared. Thanks Eddy and Suze…

Once they let me off, I get lost, adding about 20 kilometers to get to Manchester…where I have three flat tires in a row…call that poetic justice…
