AMERICA BY BICYCLE
presents
FAST SOUTH 2008
Well, it's time again to get on the road for the summer.  Our first challenge across the country is Fast South...the 2008 edition.  Every other year in the spring ABB offers this route from Costa Mesa to Savannah GA.  It's a challenging ride averaging 115 miles a day for 25 riding days.  This ride is not for the faint of heart...makes me tired just writing about it.  Once again, my crew and I are honored to be a part of ABB's summer adventures and hope y'all will enjoy following us as we absorb the southland from the seat of a bicycle.  We even go through my hood...Alabama!  BOOKMARK this page and just click on the active days below and see what we're up to everyday.  If you want to check out what other rides ABB has to offer, click on their logo above.
