Its back roads from Newton until my lunch stop in Scuba. This was in the top two meal of the trip – the Del Rio enchiladas may edge it out slightly with the food, but the lunch in Scuba had everybody beat on atmosphere.
Then I hit some more back roads until I came out close to Tuscaloosa. It was almost criminal to finish up such a fun ride with a sprint down the interstate to Birmingham, but the Friday rush hour traffic would be an even worse way to end such a fine trip. I made a quick trip to the Hoover florist and surprised my wife at work with a vase full of flowers on my way home.
2262 miles later and I was home.
It would be the next Monday before I rode my bike to Montgomery and parked it in my Dad’s back yard to officially complete the circle, but home seemed like a good place to call it a trip. The timing was perfect and I was at the point that I could have easily kept riding, or I would be happy to stop.
All in all, it was a perfect way to warm up for what is next…
