TGIF Ride from Albany, GA to somewhere south of Tallahassee, FL

Today I am going to do another ride south to the coast.  I will stop at Whataburger in Thomasville, GA before heading to Tallahassee, FL. I will add pictures along the way.

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.

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.
