Today we biked 62 mostly flat miles through rolling forest and farmlands. Most of the roads were fairly empty and the biking was pretty easy. The political leanings of many people living in this part of Washington seem clear; lots of American flags of different colors including a pattern I have never seen before; a flag with a white cross emblazoned over the stripes. Also a good number of Make America Great Again signs as well as let’s go Brandon. Had lunch at a diner where a couple had identical let’s go Brandon tattoos on their arms.
We are staying tonight at a church in Centralia; our hosts are incredibly welcoming and are actually cooking dinner. Tomorrow is another short day; only 40 miles. This trip is starting much more gently than my last one in 2019.
