This was my first week-long self-designed tour. In the past I had added my own extensions to Cover Indiana and GABRAKY. Unfortunately, on both of these organized rides, I experienced some knee problems, and the fixed distances and schedules left me feeling locked into the event schedule.
By organizing my own trip, I had the flexibility to redesign the trip on the fly and use a more personally meaningful route– riding from my home to visit family and friends in central Kentucky, about 150 miles away.
