Play a little music while you're scrolling down with the pictures!

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!

John Mayer and Eric Clapton - Crossroads (ABC News)

Tarwheels B-Ride Out Of Carrboro

Here are some "feathered" turkeys".

Adam and I will ride over and put in 16 on the way over.

I think the Dali Lama lives here!

Today it's the red Pro-Bike jersey.

That's a funny bicycle!

Arthur Minnis Road toward Union Grove and Carrboro.

Union Groovin'!

Still Union Groovin'!


The peloton gathers.

Leaving the big city of Carrboro.

It's a good looking cordial group!

This pic was washed out a bit.

Good sports!

Easy does it early!

So pretty!

What a beautiful face!

A natural!

Another group passes us on Dodsons.

Dodsons Crossroad

Kent pulls!

Eric Clapton - Layla -Jazz


This is how I felt after the ride!

      I have been seeing Terry Chen for the last five monhts and fond him to be a person with passion for healing the mind body and spirit. He was one of the first to identify my aliment which turned out to be ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and researched the best approach to attack this devastating disease. Unlike most health care practitioners I have seen he has been honest, caring, and I sincerely trust his judgement. He gets my highest recommendation!

      Hey Polly. "They call me the "Breeze". I keep blowin' down the road."

      Thank you Dear for turning that music up! "I ain't carryin' no heavy load!" "Let's go down to the crossroads!" "The Thrill is gone!" "Unchain my heart" while you're at it! Thank you Ma'am!

      If I couldn't be on a bike to gaze at this scenery(although can't see that happening 'cause that's a looooong ride right there,lol) checking it out by car would be a beaut.

      Love the pics and the ride Micky. You do it so well. One Love.

      Yo 50! Is that a euphemism? An enema gone wrong? I guess I'd be tickled!

      Love it, love it! :)

      Adam's great. I'm so glad he came to visit.

      Riding there just looks like heaven.

      Wish I could come up.

      Peace - and thanks again for some great pictures and commentary and I really love the "Unchain my Heart" video.

      Big hug -

      Rollin, rollin,rollin, nice green scenery. I remember my trip to and from the airport when I flew to Tennessee, I don't think even the pine forest up north here approach that deep color of green. If I could play my guitars as good as Clapton and you had a feather in your ass we'd both be tickled to death.

      Great share Micky, I am not a cyclist but a runner in my time and a marathoner. I know what exhaustion felt like as well. A strung up turkey. ha I hope you got to eat it. Loved the videos had me grooving while I followed your pics. Eric Clapton and John Mayer, what more can you say but FANTASTIC. Big up from me.
