Day #18 – Natural Bridge, VA to Troutville, VA – 52 miles / 84 km

Janos had to finally get rid of that rear wheel. It got so distorted that one spot on the tire kept touching the brake-shoe at every rotation. He had loosened the brake to avoid this, but then the brake had almost no effect at all.

The brothers stopped in a small town. Peter stayed with the trailers and Janos rode to a bicycle store. He got a new wheel and new brake-shoes. He had his derailleur adjusted and the chain fixed. He also bought a kickstand for himself and one for Peter. He rode total 16 miles for this detour.

They spend the night in a motel..

States: 4   Total: 779 miles / 1257 km

  1. Once again the two Kabai brothers are becoming resourceful and working together as a team of two. It would be easy to throw in the towel but that is not a Kabai tradition. Congratulations for thinking on your feet. Ron Peck, Co-Founder Blind Judo Foundation
