TGIF Ride from Albany, GA to somewhere south of Tallahassee, FL
My planned course.
Here is my ride report. Winds were the training feature for the day. The closer I got to the Gulf of Mexico the stronger they got. Weather Channel had winds at 14 MPH, gusting to 17 MPH. I was surprised to find that the largest hills on the ride were in south Tallahassee.
I was not in a hurry as I wanted to ride for the distance and not for the time. I took a few pictures.

|So happy to not be cranking|
All in all it was a good ride. I always enjoy doing a long bike tour by my self. I like this route and I will do it again. I spotted a small cheap hotel near St. Mark's so one time soon I will ride down one day and ride back the next.
