My route!!!!

My route for the BIKE NC ride snakes along North Carolina's back roads, meandering from Banner Elk in the state's Northwestern corner down toward the Southeastern corner, ending at Emerald Isle. I will pass through Triangle - torturously close to home. I might even be able to sleep a night in my own bed, depending how time goes. But anyway, here is my journey!

Day 1: Banner Elk to Wilkesboro - 69.14 miles (doing less in the mountains)

Day 2: Wilkesboro to Clemmons - 61.44 miles (may do more this day, but planned conservatively for the foothills)

Day 3: Clemmons to Bynum - 100.916 miles (still very hilly)

Day 4: Bynum to Goldsboro - 107.4122 miles (flattening out)

Day 5: Goldsboro to Emerald Isle: 107.122 miles

=445.32. This leaves me with about 30 miles to make up, which I may do getting lost, getting to the hotel, etc. OR I will simply turn up the main drag of Emerald Isle toward Atlantic Beach to log the last 30 miles. I will watch my GPS watch turn over to 476, symbolic of the 476 MILLION dollars cut from the state education budget this summer.

If you are moved a little bit, by my journey, or the urgent need for all children to have an opportunity to succeed, or both of these things, please consider making a donation to BIKE NC.
