Bikefest

The ride started at 7:30 in Hillsborough, just under an hour from home. I knew this. I set the alarm to arrive in time to get there, check in, find my peeps, etc. As I was pulling out of the driveway, I thought to myself, "I remember arriving there in the dark before. It's awfully light." Oh no! The ride STARTS at 7:30. It's not "I need to get there at 7:30." The.Ride.Starts.At.Seven.Thirty. I booked it and got there at 7:15. Put the front wheel back on my bike and made a bee line for check in (no line!) and the port-o-lets (short line!) and got to the start with seconds to spare. I looked for Doug because he is tall. No Doug. Oh, they are pulling out now. I decided to ride until I either found the CSH group or another group that I ride with sometimes.

About 15 minutes into the ride, I found the Cheetahs. I've done Tour de Cure and other events with them so it was all good. I was able to talk to them some and when we got to the first rest stop, one of them asked me if I was doing the 62 or the 100. I said 62 and she said to ride with them. I found a Team CBCer that I ride with from time to time (Cool Wings Dave, not to be confused with Purdue Dave or David Ley) and got him to going us as well.

Also at the rest stop, I saw Black Cannondale Mike. He asked if I was doing the 62 or the 100. I said 62 and he said that he was doing the 100, could he talk me into that? Nope. Then he said that he thought the ride started at 7:45 and he'd spent the first 25 miles try to catch up!

Anyway, I had a fun time riding with the Cheetahs and Cool Wings Dave!

Kevin was supposed to wake me up last night after we won the Powerball.  No wake up call.  No note.  Then I saw the winning tickets were not even purchased in North Carolina!  I headed to the pool and then work Disappointed.

Library-Park loop

I must have gotten water in my ear this morning because my right ear felt like I was underwater the whole run. You know, the whole "ear popping" thing -- all through the run. Annoying. Otherwise, the run was uneventful ;-)

Rejoining the working world after a few days off.  I had a great time in western North Carolina!  It was a good break :-) 

√ I'll be posting a few more pictures soon.  Sadly, the "official" event photos are not so good.  The good news is that Kevin was there and he took some pictures.  It's just a matter of getting him to download them from his camera.

Post-event recovery ride. My plan was to find the greenway, get on it and ride to Lake Junaluska. The first part of the plan went well but I "lost" the "greenway" after maybe half a mile. Was it supposed to be sidewalk? If so, where were the markings?


Short recovery ride around Waynesville followed by a trip to Brevard and Hendersonville that included a short hike to Hoover Falls in Dupont State Forest with Emma and Kevin as well as a stop at Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest.
