Day Three: Can You Cross a Bridge When You Get There?
In the morning, on my way out of the campground, I paid the fee, and hit the road. I rode in between corn fields and fruit gardens with no passing cars. Absolutely beautiful.

|Just Before Rochester|
At about 3 o’clock, I reached Rochester, where I had to go across a bridge to continue my route along the Lake. I found the bridge, but it was closed. It was only open in winter. Then I had to go 6 km south to the other bridge. When I got close, to the bridge, I realized that the only way to get to it was an expressway which, of course, was only for cars and trucks. After asking for direction, I rode south of the town and then north of the town where I decided to stay in Webster Park.
Now, I am in Webster Park. I don’t have much to eat, so I devoured whatever I had and sneaked into my sleeping bag. It is raining outside.
