Louis and Alan have been leading this ride and all the Hearts Rides for many years. They do a great job of deciding on routes and keeping the rides running smoothly. Click here to go to the Forsyth Bike web site and learn more about these rides.

The traditional ride for the fourth of July is "Circumnavigate Pilot Mountain". This ride is 56 miles in length beginning at the Lewisville, NC town square. We had a large group of riders today and a great time was had by all. Chris and I turned off a little early to shorten the ride a bit. We still ended up riding 50 miles of the ride. I rode from home and ended up with a total of 66 miles for the day.

When I finally got home I was super hungry. This reminded me of a cartoon, Billy Boy, that I remember watching many years ago. Below is a shortened version of this cartoon.
