Promoting the bicycling lifestyle in The Buckeye State
Tour de Bubba – Day 1
I flew down to Atlanta, Georgia to visit with Bruce and Robert, two of my friends from my coast-to-coast cycling trip. Bruce and I rode from his house in Alpharetta down to Robert’s house in Newnan (with a segment on the MARTA train to get through downtown Atlanta more easily). The trip was about 51 miles.
I borrowed Bruce’s old Cannondale touring bike, which had downtube shifters and was a bit too large for me, but worked well enough.
The weather was beautiful all weekend, with unseasonably warm temperatures in the mid-to-high 50’s, and clear, sunny skies.
