    I am very sad that day one is cancelled. I've been looking forward to this all year.

    I doubt I can get to LaGrange to do day 2. This is horrible.

    I was 220-225 when I started riding. I thought lycra outfits looked goofy and took pride in riding in regular shorts and T shirts. Gradually, though, I started riding longer distances. I found...

    All of my hill training consists of going under the bridge at Stella Link on the Brays Bayou multi-use path. I sure hope that's enough.

    I skipped every other rest stop. I ate 2 brownie bites and a packet of Southwest airline peanuts. Mmmmm. Mrs. Bag and I went to Chuy's later for beers and an Elvis Presley Memorial Combo.
