Old Cifax Road -- needs repaving in places, but still scenic.
Charlemont Road, from the other end -- starts with some stiff climbs. Serpentine downhill slopes. More climbs. Three times, I only stayed in the saddle by viewing my present me's ordeal as a gift to the me of a year from now.
My cell phone battery wimped out about halfway through the ride. Fortunately, I have a new smart phone on its way here.
Hot dogs at Sedalia Grocery, chance encounter with one of the ladies who helps me with Vicky. The clouds were moving in as I moved on out, babying myself with easier gears for the remainder of the trip.
Well, I'm better prepared for the event now than I was a year ago. Stay tuned!
