At 4am Wed. morn I leave Reno on my touring bicycle and procede southbound on old highway 395....Bridgeport, Lee Vining, Bishop, at some point my family will pick me up and we'll continue in the car to SoCal for a vacation. I'm really excited BUT also anxious, just learned there is a "wind advisory" for the whole region. Nothing worse than a 15 mile 6% grade at 6800 feet elevation with a 25 mph headwind! Well like the song says, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"! We must LIVE ON THE EDGE! At least I'll have my IPOD for tunes. Gonna try to bust 300 miles, we'll see. My touring bike is about 30 pounds heaver than the "Pinerrello" (16 vrs about 50 with the overnight gear) but, no hurry! Doyle

I feel tired and my knees and back hurt just looking at that tail bag.

You my friend have guts.

I had no idea they made a pair of bicycle shorts for "a pair that big." :laugh:

"Go big or go home." Me...I'll just go home. :bowdown:

Safe ride dude.

Wind advisory my ass, I left Reno for Oregon on tuesday afternoon and almost got blown off the road several times. How did you like that storm on monday? It hailed several inches and flash flooded Spanish Springs in Sparks in about 10 minutes. It was nuts.
