By the looks of the forecast, we won't need to tap into any of Our Tennessee reserves.

Its about 200 of elevation change between this shop and my house. Almost entirely down grade on a converted rail bed.

First ride on the new Power Roads this morning.

They feel fast and grippy, big fan so far :)

About 35 miles. North coast of the peninsula
Specifically Chikxulub Puerto.
We're about 95 miles from the west coast of the peninsula and 200 from Cancun

Rear tire issue on my morning ride. I took the Paramount because I don't really trust my brake hack on the Trek. Thumpathumpathump. The bead was popping out of the rim. Did a side of the road fix until I could do a better job at a better place.

Note to self - avoid eastern Tennesse on May 22. The crowds will be maddening.
