Monday, July 03, 2006 I developed this plan:
Cycle North Carolina–Trek Project One
I am planning to ride my DF the first four days of the tour, followed by the RANS Stratus XP on days 5 & 6, then the VK2 on the final day. Following are the towns [and the route using major roads (not the route we will ride)] and dates for the DF ride:
Day 1 Banner Elk to Wilkesboro 49.8 – 50 miles [Sun 10/01]
Day 2 Wilkesboro to Clemmons 48.1– 50 miles [Mon 10/02]
Day 3 Clemmons to Burlington 59.3 – 60 miles [Tue 10/03]
Day 4 Burlington to Holly Springs 66.9 – 70 miles [Wed 10/04]
Lodging & transportation included for information:
Day 0 ~ Banner Elk Best Western Mountain Lodge ~ $139
Day 1 ~ Wilkesboro Addison Inn ~ $69.29
Day 2 ~ Clemmons Super 8 ~ $66.67
Day 3 ~ Burlington Comfort Inn ~ $78.10
Day 4 ~ Holly Springs Comfort Inn ~
$67.75 [Change bike to RANS Stratus XP]
I plan to document the tour blogging to the respective blogs based on the bike I’m riding, in this case, the Trek Project One. I’ll post GPS data and pictures. Given the short rides, I hope to have posts up by 6:00 p.m. Each hotel has Internet access.
Well so far, the planning is being executed. It is now 5 days to departure.
