After a five day pause, I got my bike back today and will be back on the road Thursday. They replaced my rear wheel, cassette, chain, a couple brake and derailleur cables, tightened my head tube, and trued up my front wheel, among other things. It was $400 well spent. Thanks to Chris at Underdog Bikes. Highly recommended.
Meanwhile I spent some time in the hotel hot tub.
And toured the local art museum.
This is a pelt made of found keys.
This is how I felt the day I froze in the rain.
I just liked this sculpture.
Railroads, downtown Roanoke.
Tomorrow, back up the Blue Ridge!
Thanks, it was not too happy though. Tough hills all day, camped out in a forest and it rained all night.
