My brother said he had enough working for the weekend and wanted to do touristy things, so we did a hike and lunch at Mellow Mushroom. This is Hike #21 of #52hikechallenge (been a month since my last hike) But a nice short hike in downtown Blowing Rock to Glen Burney Falls.

The day was spent working, replacing wood, stucco work, etc.

Tonight Sam and I tried a short hike from Cone Manor to a field for the sunset. Folks showed up and we had a half dozen folks to watch tonight.

When is the equation N +1 false? Never, but I am having trouble with this bike. I bought the frame used as a pit bike for ‘cross, but it’s just didn’t feel right, so I built it as a travel road bike, but today it was a full 1 mph slower on my normal route. A travel bike is one that I don’t worry about locked on the back of the truck, caught in a rainstorm, etc.

For those not in the know – The perfect number of bikes is N+1 where N = the current number of bikes.
