Days 17 & 18 – McAlester to Arkadelphia

Now we are exactly two-thirds of the way through the ride.

Friday we rode from the bustling town of McAlester to the serenity of the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge just across the border into Arkansas. Getting there was a major challenge, with some steep climbing along the Talimena Parkway (like Virginia’s Skyline Drive, only steeper!).

What goes up, must come down, so today we descended through some beautiful pine forests to Arkadelphia.

If you missed yesterday’s post about Cure Alzheimer’s – one of the causes for which I’m riding – you can read it here.
