2009 MS150 Bike Tour

Saturday morning (DAY-1 12 SEP 2009) was a beautiful day for a bike ride. We actually left the bikes down in Morehead City from last weekend's Saturday ride and Sunday ride. So we loaded the bikes up last night and took off for New Bern early this morning. Here is a link to a picture of us before we left for the ride. And here is a link to a picture of us after we returned.

Here are the statistics for the ride:

47.62 .. km total distance.
21.00 .. kph average speed.
02:16 .. hh:mm total time.

Sunday morning (DAY-2 13 SEP 2009) was another beautiful day for a bike ride. This day's route was different from Saturday's. We road out of town to catch US70E across the Trent River Bridge then looped around as if to go into New Bern over the draw bridge (which is being replaced hopefully in 20010 by the time the next MS150 takes place.) Instead of heading toward the new bridge we made a U-Turn and heading up the south/east side of the Trent River. What a beautiful ride. We rode all the way to Pollicksville where we found a rest stop and then on US17 North back to New Bern. A beautiful ride. I'll post some Picasa Album pictures of Sunday's ride and update this post soon. Here are the Sunday Statistics:

54.48 ... km (total distance)
20.30 ... kph (average speed)
02:40 ... hh:mm (total time)
