|Riding next to Mobile Bay|
This year, Alabama's Magnificent Bicycling Adventure was based in Fairhope, AL near Mobile. It was a seven day ride, held May 20 to 26. Bob Bender and I drove about 400 miles down to the start, but only rode the first two days of the ride. Sunday's ride was 60 miles to Battleship Memorial Park, and Monday's ride was a century ride to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL. where the Blue Angels are based.
Bob and I both felt that many of the roads we were cycling on were a bit dangerous because of the heavy and fast traffic. This was true particularly on Monday, when we rode a good deal on US98, FL292, and the Foley Expressway (a toll expressway). Accordingly, we decided not to continue with the remainder of the ride for safety reasons, and we drove home on Tuesday.
