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

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.
I 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.
