An Additional Challenge

A tropical depression (now Tropical Storm Alberto) has formed and threatens Florida.

Here is the current projected path.

Sunday: We are just east of Jacksonville, in the Atlantic Beach area. Today, we intend to do another century, the fifth one. My toal distance on this tour is now 497 miles.

We are in from today’s ride. We are at the Holiday Inn in New Smyrna Beach, FL. We rode in heavy rain [actually a thunderstorm] late today.

Monday: It now appears, the tropical storm may pass to our north; although we are likely to have to ride in the rain. Oh well…

Tuesday: We had 3 significant down pours. They appeared to just be regular rain storms–not Alberto related. Now, tomorrow is your turn.

Wednesday: Fayetteville, NC

  1. Pretty good pace Jim. you’re avaeaging nearly 125 miles per day. The tropical storm is expected to dump lots of rain on Florida. Some areas will have flooding. The Keys have had their share of heavy rains. The good news is that so far, there is (at this time of writing) not another storm behind this one. I imagine you may have to take cover in a motel for a day or two if you can’t dodge the storm. A possible slight delay, but you can still complete the trip.
