Didn't rent a car for the week, took a taxi to the motel and rode to and from NC State for a class I was taking on the bike. 5 miles one way, not a bad ride. The first night we had a group dinner and had to ride 13 miles to the restaurant, so that was fun.
One of the instructors offered to throw the bike in his PU bed as he lived near the motel I was staying at. That was nice as it would have been another 12-14 miles to the motel after a big dinner and after the sun went down, again in
A co-worker from Atlanta. He drove up and brought his bike, as well. We found a small park close to our motels and rode it in the afternoon.
Sunrise one morning on the way to class.
Picked up a pair of these, Keen Commuters. Wanted to try them out some and the they seem pretty good.
Running some single track in the middle of the summer should be the real test.
