Virtually Biking Across America - Day 91

On Day 91, I rode 9.81 miles in western Missouri. Starting on Highway 291 over the Missouri River, I headed south and exited the freeway at East 23rd Street South in Independence. I headed west. I turned right on Main Street, left on West Maple Avenue and finally right on North Delaware Street. I finished the ride in front of the home of Harry Truman.

Last year, I read Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure. In June of 1953, less than six monthes after he left the White House, Harry Truman and his wife Bess took a 2,500 mile road trip from their home in Independence, Missouri to New York City and back.

The trip log for Virtually Biking Across America is here.
