Rolling the ATT

Unable to leave campus in time for a road ride, on Thursday I mounted up my NiteRider and hit the American Tobacco Trail. This is the perfect time of the year for an ATT ride, and it was an ideal time to roll: I headed out under a setting sun and warm weather, hit the turnaround as darkness descended, then fired up the light and followed the beam back to Durham down an empty trail. It's not a hard ride -- there aren't any real hills, though there are a series of false flats -- but it does provide some decent miles, as well as being a fun tour of southern D-town.

Of course, no ride is complete without a visit to Major, and this one didn't disappoint.

On my way to pick up a burrito I ran into these fools at the Fed. (Note that the blurriness replicates only the camera's settings, not the mental states of either the subjects or the photographer.)

I was only there for a minute, and didn't have anything to eat (or drink!), but in that small amount of time I managed to spill a beer on Geoff's crotch. Sorry, yo!

He doesn't look very happy about it, but then again you can't blame him: nothing's fun with a soggy grundel.

Not exactly a hardcore ride, but fun nonetheless. However, what I'd really like to be doing is ripping it up GL-style. Maybe soon...

They still haven't fixed that bridge? Bummer. I was hoping that'd be done by now.

Keep dreaming, my friend: the NCDOT does not get in a rush.

I saw the aftermath of what you left at the Fed. Patrick so drunk, Linus happy with his girl, and the rest of us catching up.
