And it’s gone. A couple of gentlemen from Knoxville stopped by the house tonight to collect the Erickson around 6:00pm and it should probably be in Augusta, Georgia by now. Looks like the gals from Bend, Oregon who’ll be riding the Erickson — Rachael Scdoris and Laura Winberry — are also on their way.
Greg’s Ford Focus was pretty much packed to the rafters with bikes and gear, so it was a tight fit to get the extra wheelset and two spare parts boxes tucked in to the back seat and truck.
On top of the car was a vintage Ibis EasyStreet and there was apparently another tandem with the wheels removed sitting across the back seat of the car; did he say it was a Morroni?
Anyway, hopefully the Erickson will perform well this week. Good to know that it’ll be ridden the way it was designed to be ridden: hard and fast.
