Yesterday, I completed the Strava Gran Fondo 6 Challenge. I needed to ride 81 miles, but miscalculated my route and ended up riding 93 miles! I just couldn’t pedal out another 7 miles to make it a century. Maybe next time. Here’s the map and some pix:
First of many water refill stops.
Friendly and curious horses, watching me eat pretzels.
A crop of wheat (?)
Hay and more hay.
A canopy road through the forest.
Smith Mtn. Lake at about the half-way point in my ride.
A cool old house along the way.
The route took me through Novelty, Va. Not much there.
Heyoka resting at Smith Mtn. Lake, Hardy Road Put-in. This was about mile 86.
