Subject: Much ado about nothing...
Sunday afternoon I had a dental crisis of sorts and so Monday morning the Porsche driving good dentist worked me into his schedule. (I'm sure I've made at least 3 of his car payments over the last two years.) Anyway, $300 lighter in the wallet, and with a follow up scheduled for another $300 dollar wallet lightening, the morning rando was out of the question being 11:00 am by the time I got home.But, I did manage to ride the first segment to the intersection of Rocky Ford and Epsom. Being mid afternoon I turned left to ride home on Epsom rather than turning right to continue on the course. Gawd! I love Sims Bridge Road! I [had] never been in that direction. ... I dead reckoned my way back to Raleigh by getting over to Fairport and then the usual Cannady Mills headwind route back home. (now there is another [bleeping] dog near the same place where you were attacked) Ended up with 90 miles and it was dark by the time I hit my driveway, but the front and rear "blinkies" made all the difference with traffic.So I now have 9 days to get a 200KM ride in for January. Tues/Wed/Thurs of next week are looking good (warmest) so ... . I can't wait to ride the full route.Later,Hans
The reference by Hans to me being attacked by a dog is NOT the one (or pack) I mentioned in regards to my recent Egypt Mtn ride. Instead, he refers to Aug-08-2010 and a location that is on U.S. Bike Route #1 (and the rando Kerr Lake Loop).
