Road conditions today were atrocious – narrow roads, no shoulders, crumbling and broken pavement. Moderate traffic moderate, including numerous trucks. Was glad to complete today’s ride and get off the road. Lots of extremely steep climbs. Not particularly scenic. Not sure why Adventure Cycling chose today’s route.
Parked at South Lewiston Baptist Church parking lot with 30 amp electric for the night. Youth pastor and police chaplain Chris Pomerleau recommended DaVinci’s in Lewiston at a refurbished old mill for dinner – great choice! Lewiston is an old mill town with several of the huge old mills in the process of being refurbed into lofts, stores, and affordable housing. Lewiston has some beautiful old buildings, including the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul.
