Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

How was the wind when you were down there? We went a couple weeks before you and the wind in buxton was ridiculous the whole time I was down there. Only ended up riding once.

It was really windy the first couple days, but died off by the end of the week. I used to go to Duck every summer and there were rides up to Corolla where I'd average maybe 15 one way, 26+ the other. The wind can be demotivating so I just make sure I try to ride into it to start my ride and sail home after. Loved the Hatteras area, btw, having never been that far south before.

We have always gone to Hatteras/ Frisco since I was kid. After the trip this year, the wife and I have come to the conclusion it’s just too far to travel with two kids. (one kid now, but another one on the way) I think from now on we’re going to go to southern nags head. I do plan on riding from ocracoke all the way to southern shores one day.

We did it with my 3 year old from Richmond, so it was about 4.5 hours. To her credit, she did really well and only had a partial 30 minute meltdown on the drive out there. Was probably the best week of her life once we were there too.
