After a month of riding circles in New Bern neighborhoods, I was ready to get out to the countryside to bike a leisurely pace and enjoy the sights and smells of farmland. So it was that an interesting and affordable Airbnb brought me west to Pittsboro, North Carolina where I was greeted by friendly faces and happy critters.
There were a few surprises during my week here. I was told that coyotes and bobcats do roam and while I did hear the coyotes, it was the smell of skunk that woke me from a dead sleep one night. I also thought it was great to have the barn protection in case of some stormy weather, but I didn't plan on temps going to 37 degrees! Getting out of the sleeping bag was a bit of a challenge a few mornings.
