Day 4 of the W3R-US Bike and Kayak Tour!

08/31/2021

We’re back! We were having so much fun on the tour, now it’s time to fill you in

Check out the events of Day 4 as Sal continued the Bike and Kayak Tour through Waterbury, Connecticut. Thanks again to Jeff Canning for the detailed travel log.

There was a ceremony at East Farms Cemetery to honor 2 French soldiers who died from accidental injuries during the march. Re-enactors of the Connecticut Branch of the Sons of the American Revolution performed a musket salute and Alex of Fox61 television interviewed Sal!

Next, Sal bicycled 73 miles to Hartsdale NY and the Odell House, where Rochambeau stayed for several weeks before the rapid march south….

P.S. During this leg of the journey, the support van encountered some break trouble, but Sal’s father Peter came to the rescue with a rental vehicle! Cheers to a team effort and marching on!
