Redbud Ride 2016

Saturday, April 23, 2016

Joy and I did the 2016 Redbud Ride, in London, Kentucky. We rode our Salsa Fargo mountain bikes, as part of the training for the Great Divide which we planned to do later that year.

Our friend Tom Glascock came down to do the ride, finally getting the chance to ride up the infamous Tussey Hill, one of a handful of steep climbs on this hilly ride.

Tom, Me, and Joy.

We briefly saw Marc and LeRoy; they were much faster than us, and I don't think we saw them the rest of the day.

On the Sheltowee Trace.


Joy easily made it up Tussey.

So did Tom. He seemed to think it was not as difficult as advertised.
