Dear Supporters,
Zach Sue And Evelyn At Rest Stop #1 Sunday This year both Evelyn and I prepared for the ride.  We belong to a gym now and we have been going to a 'spin-class' two days a week for quite a while.  And we took quite a few training rides this year.

On Saturday we arrived in plenty of time to start the tour.  The weather was grand the temperature was in the high 60's and the sky was clear.  The max temperature for the day only got up to around 80 or so.  The route the first day was north out of town up highway NC55 and then on to highway NC43 we looped around and came back to NC55 and back into town.  When we arrived back in New Bern we we had some lunch and decided to head back to Morehead City via the ferry.

On Sunday morning we again arrived in plenty of time for the tour to start and we had a treat for the direction the tour took.  The tour headed out NC55 east and onto US70/US17 across the Trent River Bridge.  We exited just over the bridge onto the ramp that goes back to New Bern via the draw bridge.  This is the bridge that is being reconsturcted and hopefully will be up and going when we ride in 2010.  Once off the main road we did a U-Turn and headed up the back roads along the Trent River toward Pollocksville.  at Pollicksville we got on US17 and headed back to New Bern.

We are looking forward to next year's ride and will perhaps extend our milage to the 50 mile loop.
