Dragon Video

I was looking at a few Youtube videos of The Dragon, the 11 mile stretch of US 129 that winds 318 turns through Deals Gap between North Carolina and Tennessee.  There are many of them, but I found this one to be quite laid back and enjoyable.  Make sure your volume is on.

Everyone here seems to be on their best behaviour.  Then there are guys like these:

This is one of my favourite riding areas.  I hope you enjoy.

Still Riding

It's almost half way through November and I still have the bike out.  Leo and I have been getting out on the sunny days for a few miles.  This is the latest I have ever ridden for fun, although I had the green Nomad out once on December 7th for a few miles.

It looks like this may be the end, though, because it is forecast to get much colder and snowy in the next week.  Today, I'll be rearranging the garage, swapping the mower for the snow blower and the sled for the bike.  That pretty much marks the season changeover for me.

BTW, I didn't post about it but Sandy came through her surgery on October 15th with flying colours and her recovery has been nothing short of spectacular.
