Our first turn took us into a parking lot and someone yelled, "wrong turn" and we bolted back to the main road with no accidents. Problem was that was the right turn and we were supposed to be at a tree planting. We all felt bad afterwards because the mayor and other dignitaries were on hand.
The day of riding had some big hills and climbs, really steep but they seemed to be balance with great downhills--I hit 42mph one of them. Some of the heavier guys might have hit 50!
We had a great Thanksgiving lunch as it was Canadian Thanksgiving. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberries and yes even pumpkin pie!
More riding to the next break which was at a grist mill over 100 years old. Still working, still grinding various grains.
We ended up our 80 mile ride at the University of North Carolina Greensboro where we saw some new climbing techniques by Sherrill--our major tree gear for the industry.
Dinner was on our own which allowed Team Bartlett to get together along with a few friends and business partners.
What difference a day makes to the legs and the body. On to day 3--Greensboro to Raleigh!
