Day 1: Calais, Maine. Dipping my rear wheel

This is the inaugural ride of the East Coast Greenway so I decided to borrow a time honored tradition from RAAM where you dip your rear wheel in the Pacific Ocean at the start of the race and your front wheel in the Atlantic Ocean, if/when you finish the race. I unpacked and rebuilt my bike then rode to the boat ramp I noticed on my map. Unfortunately the boat ramp had long since washed away so I carefully walked my bike down a steep ramp onto a floating dock where I managed to lower my rear wheel 2 feet below the dock and into the Saint Croix River. With luck, in 3,000 miles, I will dip my front wheel in the Gulf of Mexico
