Charleston, WV to Louisville, KY (246 miles)
Even though it should be a straight shot from Charleston to Louisville on I-64, I’ve gotten a little dependent on Internet to verify everything I do, so with no cel coverage we started our ride by finding the closest Starbucks. It was in a mall across the street, but the mall was not yet open. Luckily, we were able to get some free wifi just outside. Feels like a blast from the past, desperately trying to get online.
The ride though the eastern part of Kentucky was fantastic. Green trees, pastures and little lakes with nice new roads. A great start to our ride. Once we got to Louisville, we checked out the famous derby racetrack. We had to many horsepowers to be let onto the track, their limit was one. :). We also quickly stopped by the Ohio river to check out a statue of Clark and catching a quick glimpse at some big barges and cool bridges.
Even though the ride was a short one, we were exhausted, once we got to our hotel and went to bed early, so we could get ready for our next leg.
