At great risk of being overdramatic, my ride from Denver to Phoenixville, Pennsylvania gave me a chance to think about how our approach to cycling hills can be so much like our approach to other issues in life. Let me explain.
Fitter After 50
In Part 1 of Cycling Beautiful North Carolina, you learned what it was like to cycle through tropical storm Ana as it moved on shore. In Part 2, I’ll share the remainder of our cycling tour through North Carolina. It was nothing less than magical – for the most part, we had great weather, great roads, beautiful rural scenery, and friendly people.
Riders On the Storm
If you read my blog, you know that our trip cycling through South Carolina brought busy two lane roads, logging trucks, bad pavement, huge rumble strips, no shoulders – in other words – hell for a cyclist. We heard that North Carolina would be different. But, in North Carolina, we would face tropical depression Ana. Learn about whether North Carolina delivered on its promise and what it was like to ride in a tropical depression.
I have a lot to gain from cycling the Atlantic Coast. I’ll get more fit. Have a challenge and the adventure of a lifetime. See the country on bike time. Meet great people. But I want to do more.
I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for some charities that mean a lot to people who have made life better for me and others around them.
Each week, I’ll ride in honor of someone who has inspired me. I’ll introduce you to them and tell you about a charity that is their cause. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference.
