Sometimes you have to get on a bike.
My sister and I rode the first day of Cycle North Carolina's ride across the state on Sunday.
That's us on the Blue Ridge Parkway, just outside Blowing Rock, when we were still relatively fresh.
While we were huffing and puffing up the steeper ascents, Kate, Kirsten and Tim drove out to Linville Falls. The weather, which was dismally wet Saturday, cleared out beautifully for the ride.
One of these years I'm going to ride the whole week. But Tim had to get back to work Monday, and Kate's class met Tuesday. We're trying to figure out how to salvage the class. She failed the first big test, and the next one will have even more material covered even faster.
