Summer Ride

Me and DC are going to see some parts of the contry on our bikes this summer. We're meeting in Kansas City and will leave there Sunday afternoon. the goal is to be back in Indy by the following Saturday. Of course we'll start here in Indy. This round trip route is 3,929 miles. The B to C leg is just under 1,000 miles. With exits and what not it should exceed 1k. That will earn us the Iron Ass award.

The fun starts July 20. this is just a proposed route... things could change.

Hey! Any chance you could swing down to SC and say hello? I bet the Blue Ridge Parkway would be a blast on a bike. And it'd be great to see you!

The trip looks awesome regardless! Hope y'all have a great time!!

tanie - Yeah, I’m still around. Read your “The end of Civilisation” post a while ago and was speechless. Wish I could have said something profound.

The ride is gonna be a blast! Last years was too, got to meet a couple bloggers... hopefully this year too. You coming back to the states in July by any chance??

B - ha, no, sorry. A southern state swing is in the plans for next summer. But.. I’m always open. Last year I went to my brothers in E. Tennessee on a whim, so anything is possible. May have to get your cell just incase I happen to get close.

PP - Should be GREAT!! Gonna be heading east at some point too....
I will send post lots of pics, promise.

Kat - Thanks, we will. Promise.
