Road Rag is officially on the road! I left Memphis today riding to Covington, TN. It's about 40 miles away. Originally, Jackson was the first destination (85 miles), but training/prep didn't work out that much. Hit a lot of types of road; gravel/metro/construction/varying shoulder width(or lack thereof)/clay/separated bike path. I'm getting my sea legs back. The roads were pretty clear because of Labor Day. Speaking of, Happy Labor Day! Have an ice cream.

50 miles to Jackson tomorrow. I'll be there until Friday morning and am interviewing some strangers/drawing their pictures.
