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

Well, first of all, that photo is kinda embarrassing, as I had no business riding in that. But the photo is too funny not to post.

So, the original photo is what it looks like when the beautiful Neuse River Trail of Raleigh becomes flooded. The first patch of water was an inch. My wife and I pedal through it, lest our ride would be only 4 miles, and we'd driven 20 miles just to get there. The next patch is 2 inches. Then 3. We're getting braver and braver. The last stretch was flooded probably 2-3 feet. We didn't realize it was that deep until we were in the middle of it. We got through that, went another few miles, then saw another flooded zone and decided we'd had enough. We turn around. So what you see in the photo is me re-crossing the really deep one. My wife took the picture. I finish on the other side and wait for her. She eventually rides up, and I notice she's wide-eyed and shaking, like she's seen an alligator. She claims to have seen a fish the length of her wingspan swim right in front of her. I laugh that one off. But she insists and describes it to me. So I do a little research on the Neuse River and decide that she must've crossed paths with this creature below. She positively identified it when I showed the photo.

Not many people have had to break to let a Flathead Bass get across. Here's an example of one that was pulled from the Neuse River a couple of years ago:

You're right, BIG catfish! ... Should've said Flathead Catfish, I believe. Or maybe a Mudcat. That's the name of a local minor league baseball team.
