Tour De Pike (aka: Lost in the boonies)

Had a great time down in Pike county Ga yesterday.
Got to meet our very own Tom Stormcrowe and CrazyLady (hope I spelled that right) and then I went on the 33 mile ride...which for me turned into a 40 mile ride thanks to following the wrong set of arrows for about 3 1/2 miles (doh!).
All in all, it was a great ride, with nice rolling hills (nothing worse than 4% or so and 100 or 150ft of elevation at the most). Lots of pickup trucks, but this is GA after all and even one lady nice enough to stop and give me directions when I took that wrong turn...

anyway, due to the weather and all, I pushed it fairly hard (did the 40 miles in 2 hrs and 20 minutes ride time) and am paying for that today. I did get one photo while there and here it is.
The devil in all his glory:

Pretty cool, huh? It's always fun meeting other BF members, and to get to have a great ride AND meet members is even better!
