While everyone else made the trip up to Birmingham for the Tad Beaton Memorial ride, Bev and I stayed here and did the Sycamore ride. I sent out notice hoping to draw a few folks who would like to come along at our slower pace. No one showed up. But that is ok! The ride was just under 16 miles. This is actually the same length as our ride of 15.6 miles down Oden's Mill Road and up the Old Fayetteville highway. The big difference was the two hills we had to negotiate. With those out of the way, the only limit is her tolerance for the bike seat. Getting used to sitting for long enough to ride a 30 miler will take a little more time. But she is doing very well. She is proud of her progress and she should be. We look forward to many more rides.
