I promise to get back to quilty things soon, but right now I am training for a bike ride across the state of North Carolina. The ride starts at the west side of the state in the mountains and ends at the ocean on the east side. It lasts 7 days and the ride is 491 miles long.

Today was an organized ride put on by the White Clay Bicycle Club in Delaware, called the Shorefire Century- a century being 100 miles. Different lengths are available and I rode the metric century, or 65 miles. They provide cue sheets, road markings and snacks.
Today's ride was relatively flat through the farmlands of Delaware.
I ride to eat dessert!
