A ride around a couple of suburban cities

Suwanee Creek Bicycles sponsors 20 mile Saturday rides around Suwanee which is a suburb north of Atlanta.  Most Atlanta ‘burbs where originally train stations from the New Orleans to Washington DC train route.  Norcross, Duluth, Suwanee, Buford all were small train stops that in the recent years are being gentrified with “fake” multi million dollar town halls and city parks with playful fountains. Today I finished my ride by watching the Duluth Fall festival parade. I was able to ride -before the parade started- among the cars full with HS beauty queens, cheerleaders, school bands and sure enough, the guy with a motorized Lazy Boy that can hit 50 mph.  I had a joyful kick chatting with him for a few minutes.

I was able to ride for about 30 miles without cramping and fully enjoyed a beautiful indian summer Saturday in fall.

Again – you can check my ride here!

1,469 miles left in my 2010 goal.
