DID brought up in another post the loss of banter and comradery in the Journal. Let's use this thread for you to give an update to the community. It doesn't have to be daily but when you feel like you have something to say but it doesn't fit elsewhere. If it fails, well we tried!

Hi all! I've not been on BJ for quite a while, but decided I needed to. Have not really ridden much for the past 3-4 years, but my pants are getting too tight to keep going this way. So, fixed up tubes, lubed chain and got back in the saddle. 6.5 miles of country lanes this morning before it gets too hot - only about 85 right now.

Welcome back. I just took off a couple of months and gained all kinds of weight. It's so easy to gain and very difficult to lose, for me.

Did you see the raccoon climb that sky scraper from your bicycle?

I'm getting excited. We leave on Tuesday morning from Houston City Hall, bound for Orlando, Florida by way of the Natchez Trace, northern Alabama and Georgia and the Carolinas. It's a relay for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society I do every year with the Houston Police Bicycle Relay Team, Each year, we ride to a different destination.

Look for us on the road. We ride in leapfrog relay, 24hrs a day for a week to get there (2450 miles) The routes are public on www.ridewithgps.com . I forgot how to embed links it's been so long...but see if you can find the routes by searching for "2018 Van" in the string. Route will end "A-1F, A-2F, A....; B-1F, B-2F, B...., etc. Cue sheets have approximate times.

How many times will you ride? What kind of miles for each ride?

I'm in Van 'C', which means I'm on the ground riding for any leg assigned to Van C. We have five legs, each is about 120 miles. We ride in a 24hr relay. For example, after our ceremonial ride out in the morning (Tuesday, June 19), we'll drive from Houston to DeRidder, LA. At 3:00a.m. the riders from Van B will tag up with us. We'll head off to the east for about 121 miles, tagging with Van D at noon. They'll take off and we'll drive to our next start.

I planned the route and deliberately slowed the pace from what we usually do. We hae 9 hours to go about 120 miles. That allows us to talk to people who are curious about the ride, to detour for nearby sights and to deal with the inevitable mechanical issues that pop up.

Van C will ride about 610 miles or so in a week, arriving in Orlando on June 26. All the Vans will gather up in a staging area near town and ride in together to the Host Hotel (Hilton Buena Vista Palace). .
