Manchester NH to Portland ME. Our final stretch.
The heavy rain did not stop us.
Heather got her first flat of the trip not far from here in Saco ME. 17 miles from the end point. We took shelter in a local bar and changed the flat and tire inside. When we left it was raining so hard we couldn't see in front of us. I put the gps on navigate and followed the blue line.
At about 1am both of our headlights cut out. Still left with just 10 miles we kept going, following the blue line in nearly complete darkness.
The rain and dirt became a problem, Heather's front derailleur somehow shifted and would no longer go into her low gears. My rear brake pads got all mucked up and stopped engaging. Easy stuff to fix but when you can't see we just kept going.
We made it into Portland around 2:30am, soaking wet and covered in dirt.
