P4P Day Three

Posted by vohnjec on June 20, 2013

Day three has been great so far… Started with a five mile climbing section and then an eight mile descent! Man that was fun! Some nice rollers to bring us to lunch in Whitney Point, NY at mile 69 on a 127 mile day but not before we stopped at the Binghamton Humane Society where we saw some great cats and dogs waiting for their forever homes!

Posted by charlespedaling4paws on June 22, 2012

We made it to Watertown in no time, heat and humidity are gone! All riders felt strong and the pace line was running likes Swiss watch. Off to dinner now and for the first time 4 Canadian friends of Pedaling 4 Paws are crossing the border to join the 13 riders for the final stage to Ogdensburg NY. We took a photo by Lake Ontario ! We visit the Jefferson County SPCA and the St Lawrence Valley SPCA for our final stops tomorrow.
