15 May 2010
Today was the 1st Annual Tour de Midlands, a ride with different distance options up to a century. I rode 101 miles of a beautiful route around Lexington to cross the Dam, to Dutch Fork, Peak, Pomaria, Little Mountain, past Dreher Island, across Black's Bridge, and back to Lexington High School, totally "circum-cycling" Lake Murray. For a "1st," these folks did an outstanding job of planning and preparing for this event. I enjoyed everything about today, except for the blazing heat, but then, who does one blame for that? Play the hand you're dealt.
Time to taper off the riding, only nine days until the 2010 Assault on Mt. Mitchell. And I, for one, personally hope to assault Mt. Mitchell; that mountain has beat me up for the last two years, and it's time he toted a whoopin'!
Be blessed, be safe.
