It's all part of my midlife crisis, my first "real" tour from my house to a state park that is about 53 miles away. It was a great ride. I meet some interesting people and seen some sights that you can't see from the interstate at 70 MPH. Had a couple of lessons learned, DeSoto and Marshall counties in Mississippi are not flat, and Schrader tubes will not fit Presta wheels ( I had a flat less than 1/2 a mile from the park ). In a few months it's the MRT from Reelfoot lake to Memphis with the right tubes as spares this time and a camera.
