Finished my second century in a month. Wedding in Champaign this weekend so I decided to bike over. Another 100 miler. Good news to report is that I had NO near misses or close encounters. That makes it a successful ride. On another note, the cross country crew just finished their journey. Unfortunately, the ceremonial ride to Revere Beach was in a rain. Not a good way for the 013 crew to end the ride but I still remember what a great feeling it was regardless of the weather. Congratulation to all those who participated in the 013 adventure across America. Like those of us who accomplished this in the past, I'm sure they have many stories to share. I would like to give a shout out to Barbie. She began her cross country journey with the 09 riders and finished it two years later having done it in sections. A good plan for someone who can't take 7 weeks from their work to do something like this. The reason for the shout out is that I could not find Bob Fullers blog. You may recall he had an accident in Ohio that caused him to miss the rest of the ride to Boston. This summer he joined the group where he had the accident so he could finish what he started in 09. I knew he had a blog but couldn't find it. Knowing Barbie follows many of the cross country bloggers, I returned to her site. And, the good news is that Bob's blog was on her site. I was able to enjoy Bob's comments as he completed his adventure. So, thanks Barbie, it was greatly appreciated.
