Tomorrow, Good Guy Greg and I leave the Queen City en route to Winona, Minnesota for Single Speed USA. Our route is sorta planned, but changes can and probably will be made. So far, we've planned stops to ride in
Knoxville, TN and , and after that anything
goes. We’re kinda flying by the seat of
pants, and with two days to get to Louisville,
we should have plenty of time.
That means I can actually enjoy some of these cities I’ve never visited before.
Since I don’t care to fly, I haven’t been to very many places outside of the eastern
Hell, I’ve never even been to Knoxville,
despite the fact that it’s just over the hills from here. The big thing though is when we get to Indianapolis (where we’ll
probably spend the night tomorrow), because I have no fucking idea what we can

Sometime after our
adventure, we’ll pass through Wisconsin. We have the option to go through Milwaukee and visit the Historic Pabst Brewery,
or go through Madison
to tour the Ale Asylum brewery. Hmmm, shitty “I can get it
anywhere beer”, or “let’s try some really good beer.”
That’s probably an easy choice, huh?
The last leg of our journey takes us across the Mississippi River into
Minnesota, and the town of Winona. We’ll meet up with crazy single speeders from
all across the country, as well as the rest of the DrunkCyclist crew fresh off their own road trip.
All that before we even “race” on Saturday.
I hope that little town can handle us all.
There will be no blogging for a while, at least until the middle of next week (if I survive.) If you’re lucky, I’ll keep my Twitter updated while I’m away.
Follow along if you dare (or if you’re bored.)
