Eric Clapton/JJ Cale-Call Me The Breeze
My friend of decades, Adam, has arrived for a couple days from the SC mountains.
Adam was a customer at my bike shop in Asheville and is sporting a Pro-Bike jersey.
This is Ben Johnston Road out of Hillsborough.
Adam and I are just riding 25 or so today.
Adam has a kind heart.
We're finding a few easy roads.
There are a few hills too.
There's too much scenery!
