Shakedown at Surry Part 1

As mentioned on this very bee-log the farewell to Russ tour took off this past weekend for Surry, VA. Many miles were pedaled, laughs were had and we wished our friend goodbye and good luck Pants Richmond style. The route we took was last graced by our pants in 2007 when we did the same ride with the same cast. Since then the capital to capital trail has gotten closer to Richmond, but there is still plenty of road to ride on. The rest is in the pictures...

Stop to take a seat on Rt 5.
The whole crew
On the ferry to Surry
I'm on a boat!
Watching the gulls
An album cover group shot is mandatory
Reflection on life
Russ goes for swim
The water was warm
We followed up the ride with camping at Chippokes Plantation State Park. Lisa, Erin and Matt soon joined us for dinner and late night chatter. Matt helped us carb load for the next day and we were off to bed early. A big camp fire would have been nice, but having a cooler full of food and change of clothes brought by car to us was just as nice. Next up is the return to Richmond, see you soon.
