Changing the world one wheel at a time

Go past Sea Otter and straight to Georgia


Posted on 16th April, by CClinton in Vince Gee. Comments Off

Our team is not participating in Sea Otter in Monterey, CA. It is the weekend before Tour of Georgia. It actually starts today as I type this and sit in our first hotel for the start of the Tour of Georgia. I’m NOT a fan of Sea Otter as I believe the race does not really benefit pro cycling, pro riders and most of all road cycling in general. A 3 day race with a a total of 162 miles? Pathetic to say the least.
I’ve been driving since Monday the 12th and I have seen just about everything in my travels past and present.
In the past, I have seen corn palace (in one of the Dakota States). The outside of which is made of corn. The Colored corn (dark, medium and light) is actually used to make artistic pictures of people, places etc. The corn palace is huge and the “corn art” on the side is equally huge. Wacky to say the least.
In my team travels, I’ve seen the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, and best of all, the Great Wall of China.
This trip though had been pretty bland. Nothing to write home about except the few “ordinary” things that I have seen. Here are a few of the sights by numbers.
3 – Number that I was honked at by biker geeeeeeeeeek
4 – Number that I was cut off by blind drivers (or they were on the phone at the same time and turned “blonde”)
8 – McDonalds Sausage biscuits consumed
48 – Hours of drive time
54 – Hours of total travel time
56.77 – Average speed mph
