Day 34 – Nashville, TN to Crossville, TN

by on October 17, 2012

This will be a short blog because my schedule got compressed because of the length of the ride today. I didn’t get in until 4:45 and did laundry, took a shower, and had dinner. But the news is all good. A difficult ride because of the 125 miles and the amount of climbing (7,470 ft) but the weather was good, conditions of the roads good, and I really rode well and strong but I’m glad it’s over. 107 miles tomorrow with 5,464 ft of climbing so it will be another long and difficult day but the weather forecast looks good and I’m eager to get on with it!

Meet Rob Kirk, a 63 year old Australian who is the 2nd strongest rider in our group but just look at him. He’s a rake and let me tell you, very strong.

I’ll try and provide a more interesting blog tomorrow. There’s some positive news re Brett – check it out at

    you be SO awesome Don – all of you are!!! Totally enjoying following the ride and am truly happy you are so close. Following Brett daily and am happy for todays report. Keep on keeping on…
    Mallorca 70 miles and 8000 ft of climbing yesterday and 90 miles and 7500ft today. Not the distance, but it sure is pretty and SB to Taos set me up well. Am there in spirit and willing you all along.
    May the days seem short, a tailwind follow you and the miles pass in a negative 2 percent grade. That is an ancient Canadian proverb from a somewhat ancient Canadian. Lol.Be well.
