Follow the crazy adventures of an Alabama cyclist all over the world.
I had just tucked and was flying along at 45 mph when out of nowhere the road went from perfect pavement to rough gravel. I had just enough time to slam on the brakes and hit the gravel at maybe 20mph. Thankfully I didn’t pinch flat and decided with the rain starting that I’d probably be better to stay on pavement. So I turned around and the took the state highway alternative route.
