Tour Of Southern Rural Vistas, 2013.
Rode it over the weekend, from Cairo to Albany.  Just did the metric double-century option, but brother with that headwind, a metric was all I needed.  Here's a link to the info page.  If you weren't there, don't worry, it'll be back around next year.  The dirt road option looked really interesting, but watching those poor bastards come in from 75 miles of wet clay roads makes me think I picked all that I could handle.  "Like riding through peanut butter for ten miles!" one rider said.  Maybe next year.

In the meantime, here are some pictures to browse through:

At the start for the return trip from Albany.

On a bridge over the Flint River.  Surprisingly, we were still in town, very urban all around.

Another view of the Flint, looking north from the same bridge.  That structure in the middle of the river is the ruins of an old bridge.

Hats off to the Capital City Cyclists for putting on such a great two-day ride.  OK, that's all for now, off to work.

ps: edited to add "CX", because I used the CX bike on this trip.
