    Yep according to my wife I have lost my ever loving mind but I am going to do it anyway. Billy is going for a little bike ride........... :P

    I am going to be leaving in the next month or so heading to Indy and the Speedway. I didnt get to go to the races this year because I was in Charlotte at the NASCAR race but I still want the 100th Anniversary T-Shirt. And what better way to go and pick it up than to ride my bicycle. So now I am planning a safe route to get up there and back hitting a lot of the back roads and byways. The only bad thing about it is that I will not be able to carry any sewing machines home with me on a bike when I stop and look around at different spots during the trip. :(

    But I am thinking it will be a 6 or 7 day round trip going up through TN, KY, and IN. I do want to ride through the land between the lakes and stay at the park one night. I figured as I plan this trip out that I could swing by some of your places, hang out and if it was okay crash for the night. I want to try and to meet as many quilters and machine collectors on the board on this little excursion that my wife thinks is crazy if possible. I am guesstimating that I will ride around 100 miles +/- a day and I want to change up the return route from the way I came.

    Yep I am peddling!! :-D

    I am ordering my Road Bike today or tomorrow and I should have it here before the end of the month and then the local bike shop has to set it up to fit me. But I am going with an Aluminum/Carbon Fiber bike so I can have the best of both worlds and I can afford the thing. I wanted a total Carbon Fiber bike but they can run upwards to $10,000+ for a really nice one. I am only allotting myself $3500 to spend on one and that is including the GPS/Computer, the touring rack and bags that I am mounting to the back of the bike.

    But she did say that we could drive up there but I told her that after everything that I have had to deal with that I needed to air my head out and relax. But this is only a starting point for my next big trip.......East Coast to West Coast in April with a couple of my buddies. :thumbup:
