W3R-US Bike and Kayak Tour Day 14 Recap

Bike and Kayak Tour – Day 14: Sal and I returned to Mount Vernon for the formal start of today’s 81-mile trek through continuing heat and humidity and were on our way a little after 7 a.m. We followed U.S. Route 1 as far as Fredericksburg, Virginia, then turned slightly southeast to U.S. 17, Virginia 2 and U.S. 301, which were marked by “Washington Rochambeau Route” signs.
Sal rolled into Hanover (just northeast of Richmond) at 3 p.m. and received a musket salute from re-enactors of the Hanover County Militia in front of the Hanover Tavern, which has been serving the public since the early 1700s and currently is home to a theater as well as a restaurant and bar.
Sal spent time with the re-enactors before adjourning to the Tavern for dinner with Dave Meredith, national treasurer of W3R-US and interim chair of W3R-Virginia; wife Sam Meredith, a director of W3R-US; Jennifer Wampler, director of trails for the Virginia Department of Recreation and Conservation; and me.
We are spending the night with Dave and Sam before heading to Yorktown in the morning.
