Leaving Tomorrow, starting the 30th

Super nervous. I'm hoping I'll have the same luck I had last year, and of course be faster.
Who knows how it will go; so may variables.
Stalk away.

Blue Ridge Parkway Ride

Notice the new helmet? Yup; drove all the way to Asheville and forgot my helmet. I found a guy in the parking lot and asked where the nearest shop was.  He sent me to Youngblood Bicycles just down the road, and after a quick chat he told me to put in my resume......uh....damn it, just moved here.

So I started a little late, but wound up riding with Billy from Catawba Valley Brewing Company. Lucky for me he was riding at my pace so we spent our time chatting which of course made the time go by much faster.
Unfortunately we had to part ways after this photo. I kept going too Linville for dinner and just down the road to camp out around 7 or so.
The next day was faster but the rain/clouds slowed me down. I did manage to get one measly photograph.
At the last little snack stand I stopped for water and to warm up; which didn't really work since the fire was too small. I managed to get a ride for the last 18 or so miles. Mostly downhill and more than likely very cold.  So I'm a wuss, but it was for the best.
