Ride like the wind. Or not.

I know I haven't posted in a while.  Sorry, grandpa.  I'm pretty sure he's the only one left who is still reading this blog.

The last month has been full of traveling in the Old South, visiting family and cycling up hills.
Oh, and I saw a rocket launch.  Heavens, I mustn't forget the rocket.

A couple of weeks ago, I drove to my cousin's house in Savannah, GA, for some family time.  We also managed to go for a little ride with the local cycling club.

And now, I'm back in school.  I just finished my first week of school, and I must say there's a lot of aggression on the road in Gainesville right now.  On Friday, I was yelled and honked at more than I've ever been audibly attacked in Gainesville before.

Don't worry, I'm not deterred.  I plan on riding a lot within the coming weeks, not only as a cycling advocate trying to spread peace between bicycles and cars, but also as an athlete in training.  Yes, you read correctly.  I'm doing the Six Gap Century in Georgia at the end of September.  I better get my behind in the saddle and start rackin' up the miles if I plan to finish..
