Pretraining

I have ridden 2922.7 miles so far this year.  My normal year total is around 3000.  A good beginning. Let training begin!

Safe Century

In 100 miles, I was only passed by 94 cars. Lots of nature; lots of open road; and the beauty of the Blue Ridge watching over you

Time to up my distance.  A little rain, clouds being blown out by a rising breeze; not a perfect day, but still a good ride.  I did this the way I hope to do my cross-country days: done in less than 7 hours, a quick shower, and a good nap.

Beauty

pictureI look forward to seeing the beauty of America on the transcontinental ride.  Yet the beauty of Virginia is stunning!  Rather than mindlessly log miles, I stopped a few times yesterday to capture some of the scenery that surrounds me daily.  I said a quick prayer of gratitude for the box turtle, deer, and fox that accompanied me.
