After a good breakfast at Lawrence Park Dinor in Erie – an old fashioned diner owned by Becky with quote plaques all around, I headed out on the bike trail from the campground to Route 5 Alternate which met up with Route 5 in Erie. Then Route 5 all the way! Good shoulder, rolling hills, some pretty views of Lake Erie; ride cut short by thunderstorms.
Drove about 8 miles to Fredonia NY to park overnite in Walmart parking lot.
Quote for the Day: “Does running late count as exercise?” “Everyone is entitled to their own ridiculous opinion!” “It’s not hard to meet expenses. They’re everywhere!” “If you have the time, isn’t everywhere within walking distance?” Wall plaques at Lawrence Park Dinor
