Bikecentennial / Re: Wish I was there

I was there. I rode from Radford VA to Williamsburg. It was my first of many bike adventures. I had a great time other than the heat. Our leader was Allison French an Aussie. I don't remember the names of the other riders. I can remember leading a breakfast rebellion. Allison was a nuts and berries type eater and I complained that I couldn't bike with that type of food. After the revolt we ate a little better. We also appointed one of our female riders who I believe was from Atlanta as our official local liaison  since some of the local storekeepers were still in civil war mode plus we yankees couldn't understand them anyway. Just last year I drove from the Skyline Drive down to Vesuvius. I couldn't believe that I rode up that hill with full packs on a bike with no granny. That tour led to a lifetime of cycling for which I will be forever grateful.
