It's easier than you think, and a lot of fun. See you next year? ;-)
Hope so. I'm going to make it my "goal ride" for 2014 instead of doing the annual Bike The Drive. Going to work on building up my base miles over the winter so by the time June arrives I'll be ready to roll.
Cycling....if you're not having fun, you're definitely doing it wrong!!
