Day 11 Plymouth NC to Suffolk 88 miles

Green and white sign with text Welcome to City of Suffolk Virginia with Cardinal. Adams Swamp Rd (Trees behind)

Big day today, heading to Suffolk to be picked up by my son,  for a weekend with him in Virginia Beach.   Looking forward to days of no riding but first had to ride the initial plan of 96 miles, with the only options to shorten it was to ride a highway.  This was my 11th day of riding and my body is feeling it. Really looking forward to the days off.  The plan was for a fast morning ride to get as many miles as possible before lunch.  Was a good plan but I struggled through the morning with energy but did get 43 miles  by lunch stop.  I was on he bike most of the morning with only standing brakes to navigate.  After lunch the route took me up 4 miles up one of the highways and quickly convinced me that  I would not take the short route on it.  No shoulder and traffic.  After returning to the quiet back roads there was a bridge out and a detour into who knows where and no phone reception for GPS for most of the day.  Winding my way through the detour and a couple of wild guesses I ended back on route. In fact the route I ended  up saving 8 miles.  So the long day worked out and after the 88 miles my son picked me up  and will return me Monday morning.
