Virtually Biking Across America - Day 71
On day 71, I rode 21.3 miles across Nebraska. Starting at the old Pony Express Trail marker placed by Phelps County, Nebraska on Highway 183 [+40° 38' 53.94", -99° 22' 49.08"], I rode a short distance north to Road 747. Turning east, I rode 16 miles east on Road 747 to Highway 44. I went a mile south on Highway 44 and then turned east on Highway 50a. I finished the ride on the grounds of Fort Kearney.
With a slight downhill most of the way, this was one of the fastest rides that I have done. I carried an average speed of 21.3 miles an hour.
