The day started with heavy rain and a storm warning. So while we were waiting Bubba moved breakfast to a nearby Steak and Shake.
The rain let up around 10 AM and a local ride showed us his route thru Tallahassee. We nicked named the route, the 100 hills of Tallahassee, who know any place in Florida is that hilly.
Jim’s route was quite an adventure, along sidewalks, thru parks, on bike paths, residential streets and a visit to an ancient Live Oak.
After 20 miles, Jim left us to complete the rest of our 70 mile ride to Madison on Rt. 90.
At about 50 miles, we stopped to see the Ray Charles Statue in Greenville, FL, Ray Charles childhood home. The day has stayed dark and overcast so it has been a comfortable riding day.
The last part of the ride is quiet until we get near Madison. Lighting and thunder for the last few miles into Madison. Then a deluge just as we enter town.
