I live just across the river from Augusta,GA, but am originally from New Orleans.
Mostly, I ride the asphalt on my Specialized cyclocross. I began on a Trek mountain bike about 6 years ago, but I wanted to cover a little more ground in the time. Still a bit uncomfortable on skinny tires.
Mostly do 50 to 60 mile loops in SC, NC, GA and VA, but have tented and cycled in NM, MA, Montreal and the Eastern Townships for a couple of weeks at a time over the last three years.
Looking at some time doing same in KY and IN in June, so will hope especially to be in touch with those of you familiar with some good road riding in those areas.
Hey Chazmo,If you are going to ride in Ky and In you are getting close to my stomping grounds.I just rode a 50 miler in New Harmony Sunday and rode a couple 50s in Bloomington In last Oct.Great cycling areas.Much like here in Southern Il but,hey thats GREAT to me.Welcome to a great club...Hilly
