Well rested after our day off in Baltimore, packed lunches neatly arranged in our handle-bar bags, Garmin Edge 705’s in hand and programmed to take us the next 49 miles to Rockville, we set off keen to get on the road whilst the sun still shone. This state of euphoria was short-lived when Kat suggested that we take a more refined route than that recommended by the Satnav. What Katnav failed to realise was that the Satnav comes with a built in “avoid gangland territory” SD card, where as Katnav only comes with “where is the nearest Salvatore Ferragamo shop” SD card. Nonetheless, we did successfully navigate through the eerily silent streets of gangsterville, and were soon cycling once more across the rolling hills of Maryland.
We arrived in Rockville after achieving our fastest average speed (11.3mph) to date despite ascending over 3335ft in total. The hotel is great and the town had lots of great restaurants for us the pile the Kilojoules back on.
Now, all that remains is for us to watch family guy and finish another packet of peanut M&Ms... goodnight.
