September 16, Mineral, VA to Mechanicsville, VA

I started riding today at about 8:00 in Mineral.  The route first took me north to Lake Anna.

Lake Anna, near Bumpass, VA

I rode through the town of Bumpass, VA, and past a place called Coatesville, VA. Then on to Ashland VA.  The roads were lightly traveled between Mineral and Ashland, but between Ashland and Mechanicsville the traffic was heaver.

Yesterday and today I have been seeing some corn and bean fields. Near Bumpass, VA

I rode through the town of Ashland, then on to Mechanicsville, VA.  Vicki had arrived about an hour ahead of me.  I found Vicki and ended my ride for the day.
