Since my last post, we’ve been busy riding mostly from our home base.
The second week in September found us in beautiful Americus, GA for three days of riding, eating and socializing – three of our very favorite things! During the Georgia Tandem Tour we were lucky enough to stay in the historic Windsor Hotel.
The town of Americus seems to revolve around the Windsor and it keeps downtown vibrant. The Windsor dates back to 1892, and it’s beautifully and perfectly preserved inside and out.
If you ever get the chance to stay there, we highly recommend it.
Americus is real close to Plains, Ga – a very small town and the birthplace of our 39th President, Jimmy Carter.
We also visited Andersonville, the notorious Confederate prisoner-of-war camp. Seeing the National Prisoner of War museum is a moving experience, and worth a look.
The scenery features fields of peanuts, pecans and cotton.
At the end of September we celebrated Roger’s birthday with a two-day self-supported ride from Hiram to Rome.
It was about 50 miles each way in perfect weather. Half on the Silver Comet Trail, and half climbing back and forth from Rockmart to Rome.
We had a fun dinner at Bella Roma Italian.
The round trip cab fare cost about the same thing as the dinner, but the experience was priceless!
Next month we’ll hit the road to attend our 19th consecutive Southern Tandem Rally in Tennessee, before we head west for some training and relaxing on the left coast.
