    Double Nickel Birthday Ride (plus a few)

    It was a great day to ride and we had a good one. 62 miles, so another metric century. Counting the mile round trip from home, I rode my age plus 8 (late fee ), eight days after my fifty-fifth birthday.

    Thanks to my friend, Adam for riding it with me.

    How do you like this bike lane?

    What a way to chalk up another milestone. Congratulations. How far will you have to ride on your 95 birthday?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Great ride and pics.
    I gotta move out of Atlanta so I can find some roads with no cars.

    Wow! Is that GA Hiway 22? or 49?

    When I first saw it I thought it must be US 441 north of Milledgeville but when I looked at your route I realized it must be one of those. So that's where the stimulus money is getting spent. I hope they do leave a nice big shoulder for us.

    It is hwy 243 near Ivey, the road from Milledgeville to Gordon. This section is being widened to a divided 4-lane as part of the Fall Line Freeway. I'm not sure if there will be bike lanes or at least shoulders with the less obnoxious type of rumble strips, but at least with 4 lanes there will be a better chance of cars giving us a lane. But I like it like it is. I hope they take a long time to complete the work and open the extra lanes.

    It looks like you got some pretty nice roads over there. Congratulations on the ride and it looks like the leg is pretty much healed up. Way to go.
