Day 45 – Milton, FL to DeFuniak Springs, FL – 54.71 miles – Elevation: +951 / -860 feet
Today was a relatively short 54.5 mile day. Unfortunately, I had a doctor appointment at 1:45 PM. Since the doctor was more than an hour’s drive from the finish point, I really had to push hard to finish the route and make my appointment. In fact, I may have been the first rider in.
As I mentioned before, my goal is to complete the whole route. However, today was one of the days that I almost didn’t complete. I had a similar dilemma on day 23 leaving Sanderson when I broke my front shifter cable. SAG wanted to drive me to the rest stop to have my bike fixed there. However, I refused and continued on so I could complete the whole route,
The question I am struggling with today is do I have to cycle every inch of the route to say I successfully completed the coast to coast route? What do you think? Anyone?
