The day started with checking and fixing the bikes. A few days ago Janos fell (the brothers were tactful enough not to tell us about it). He immediately had to change a broken spoke in the front wheel. Today he noticed that his rear wheel was twisted, and four spokes were broken in it. They also sent us a picture about his gear, that he had to change. Luckily they are carrying almost a complete third bike and many tools in the trailers, and they even know how to use them.
They did not ride too much today, they rather enjoyed Washington, D.C. They saw the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, the Capital Building and the White House. All these they have seen once before, but they might not remember, being only toddlers then…
Janos and Peter decided it was time to spend the night in a real bed, take a nice long shower and find a laundry room. For the first time during their trip, they will sleep in a motel. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
