My First Tour

I’m leaving in the morning for my first tour.  I’m not camping, it is still March.  I’ll be staying indoors each night.

On the first day I’m riding through New Albany IN, Pekin, Salem, Bedford, and stopping to visit with Michael in Bloomington.  Michael and his wife are kind enough to offer a room to me for the night.  That first day will be 110 miles and quite hilly.

The second day brings me through Martinsville, Mooresville, Plainfield, and into Indianapolis.  I’m staying at a hotel in the downtown area.  That will be 81 miles of moderately hilly terrain.

Monday is a rest day.  My wife is planning to drive up for a visit.  We’ll check out the sites of downtown Indianapolis.  Although I’ve driven through that city on the freeway many times, I don’t really know it.

Debbie, my former triathlon training partner, should arrive sometime on Monday.  We’ll head out Tuesday morning.  We’ll ride 55 miles of flatter terrain to Columbus and get hotel rooms there.

Wednesday will through Seymour, Crothersville, and Scottsburg.  Debbie will be home at the 65 mile mark.  I’ll continue on into Charlestown, where I may enjoy some pizza.  My total for the day will be about 93 miles.

This will be quite an adventure, and other than some rain, the weather is looking good.

I’ll have a camera with me, and I intend to take quite a few pictures.

  1. Those seem like some pretty big mileage days for a first tour. Since I’ve only done the S24O thing so far. I’m looking forward to all the details you are willing to provide. I hope you enjoy…
