After the trailer was loaded, the Manse was cleaned, a thank you note was left, and everyone had their cue sheets, we headed down the street to the beach for the wheel dipping. Dylan actually fell and scraped his elbow before we had even made it one block...maybe he should have practiced a bit more with those clipless pedals before the trip...haha. Anyway, we all got to the beach, and stood around taking pictures for a while...then took our shoes off (sand in cleats is NEVER a good thing) and carried our bikes down to the water. There were a bunch of parents and friends there taking pictures for us...it was pretty cool.
We dipped our back tires in the Atlantic (I dipped my front wheel, too, since a friend of mine told me I had to...otherwise, I'd only be biking across the US minus the length of my bike) and headed back to the boardwalk to put our shoes back on and head out...we were on our way...
