I finally registered for Bike VA, after having no luck putting together a team to register (and save a few bucks). Committing to the ride signals that I’m now really in training mode. With 382 miles and two centuries ahead I want to be comfortable with a few long days in the saddle.
I’m riding with the same guys as last year. This year, though, we’re taking a little different approach – camping most nights, but hotelling it when we’re in Emporia. This should give us a welcome break from the crowds right smack in the middle of the ride.
