Woah, I can't believe no reply to that. Thumbs up on a huge ride! Just because you ride like that all the time doesn't make it easy. Can you remind us the promotion that went with the ride; wasn't there a movie or something? Also, you must have at least one good story; coolest thing you saw, close calls with traffic, how many flats...?

Welcome back 10 Wheels!

Sorry to have missed you on your pass through Dallas. I've had a bit of a physical set back and my mobility is a bit limited.

This Totally Wild. Happened in North Carolina.
That old man is me at the start.
Brian is my room mate.
He raced ahead with one hand on the bike.
