Follow the crazy adventures of an Alabama cyclist taking on the Race Across America (again) in 2017.

Tues, 1/28 @ 1:57PM – US Hwy 31 at the library. A little farther down the hill, I see a man walking down Hwy 31 south at the Vestavia Hills Library. Cars have slid into the grassy median. I start to worry about my own traction as the road is starting to get icy. I pick my route more carefully alternating between riding in the grass or deeper snow on the road depending on which looks faster and easier to ride. Wind-blown stretches like the one shown in this picture had to be avoided. You can see in this picture that I am riding down a stretch of deeper snow between two wind-blown sections.
