Since it was recommended to me I went to Village Bakery. A local and sustainable joint. Good food and coffee with a nice mix of people working or eating there. Once again I wish I had more time to explore the area. I was so pooped last night and I slept in this morning. Athens has made my list of a revisit one day. I stopped into a bike shop to air up my tires and get some energy snacks. The guy at the shop told me the road I took into town yesterday had grades as high as 24 percent. Ohio brought it yesterday and did the same thing today. There were seven really tough hills today. My short cut out of town was the one of the steepest hills yet. At the very top I got a thumbs up from a lady going for a walk. This part of Ohio is very hilly and very beautiful. My writing ability and my iPhone camera can’t do the scenery justice so I didn’t take many pics and I’m not going to try to describe it either.
