This photo above was made in a cypress grove north of Jackson, MS. Some people may be interested in the rig. The bicycle is a Jamis Aurora Elite (I believe it is the 2011 model) with significant modifications. including low-ride Tubus racks up front and Tubus super-light rear. All bags and panniers are Ortlieb
85.41 miles today. And through the hills of Tennessee. To Colbert Ferry this evening… From this photo above – with the sun in the opposite position than yesterday’s feature photo – one of the most physically exhausting days of my life. Almost too exhausted to sleep. But tomorrow is another day of riding, of course. So
“We choose to go…not because [it is] easy, but because [it is] hard, because that goal will serve to measure and organize the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.” ~John F. Kennedy
It would be impossible to figure up how many miles I’ve cycled. I do know that, before my bike was stolen last May, I had worn out two tires to the liner on a simple Giant Sedona hybrid. Now I’ve extended my abilities and range with a new bike that I’ve had since last summer.
