So Far, It's Smooth Sailing on Road to Atlanta


Editor's Note: Polly and Kelvin Schill's tandem adventure on their way to the Olympic games in Atlanta, Ga., continues:

Day 4, July 23

What a wonderful day! Many highlights, so read on:

Route: Bedford, Ind., to Elizabethtown, Ky.

Distance: 105.3 miles

Average speed: 14.9 miles per hour.

Time: Seven hours, two minutes on the bike; 11 hours from start to stop.

I replied, "These are our directions," and briefly explained our trip to her. It turns out she was the town reporter and wanted to do a feature story. Our coverage has expanded beyond the Daily Herald by about maybe 50 people. It's nice to tell our story to someone besides the cows.

Two: We had fellow tandemeers join us from Livonia, Ind., to Elizabethtown, Ky. Our compadres were Jim and Janet Lumpp. We had a delightful time with them, and they are the reason for our higher average today!

Stoker's salutations: Hi! Another great day. It was good to have Janet and Jim with us, and nice to have other people to talk to and to press us on. Tonight we are staying with the Norwoods, cousins in Louisville. We are going to slow down our pace. At our rate - 100 miles per day - we will be in Atlanta way ahead of schedule with nowhere to stay. …
