Big Biking Weekend Coming Up

Last night I got the drive train cleaned and lubed, tweaked the brakes, took the rack and other commute specific gear off and otherwise readied the bike for this weekend. This morning I rode with the SPP 05:45 crew to breakfast in Annapolis. It was an easy pace and felt good to stretch my legs before the big weekend.

I leave tonight to drive to Salisbury and ride the Seagull Century with my brother Todd, Earl J from the SPP and perhaps a few others. The weather forecast looks darn close to perfect. Low 50's at the start rising to the low 70s by the finish, with clear skies and little or now breeze. Biking doesn't get much better than that.

Sunday I'll ride my 10th 200K permanent of the R-12 series on the lower Eastern Shore starting in Wallops Island, VA to Cape Charles and back. The weather forecast is for more of the same.

That'll be 225 miles in two days. I've done 125+ on 9 occasions this year plus 100 on my ride to the beach in July. Just never done it two days in a row. I'm looking forward to it. I'll post updates from the road on Twitter, not sure if I'll get a blog entry up tomorrow for the Seagull or not.
