Up early and had motel breakfast then headed to Charlottesville on US 250 again. Busy road. Ron has been having Achilles tendon pain and decided to see a doctor before the major climbs.
The diagnosis was an Achilles tendon tear. That regrettably ended Ron’s Transam I am going to miss a great riding partner and discussing how to solve the world’s problems. It was great meeting you Ron and riding with you. Remember there is always another day.
Stopped early to have fresh legs for the climb up Mt. Afton . Also hoping the wind will drop overnight or not be on nose like it is now.
Sent a box home that didn’t meet the “three day rule” which if you have not used it you probably won’t. That’s for elective stuff of course.
