Greetings good People!

This was a General Fitness Ride around Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad-A and Pad-B, what a ride!

I have not taken my Trek 2100 (2007 vintage) for a long time and most especially this sort of wide open distance!

For a over-weight fat guy and 57 years old, I did very well and I have not lost any strength in my legs as I always had powerful legs.

We started at the South-West Parking lot of the Vertical Assembly Building (VAB) and we rode along Saturn Causeway to Launch Pad-A which is exactly 3.5 miles. We continued and past the KSC LC-39 Observatory Gantry (Tourist Out Post) and then, turned North on Cape Road after passing Launch Pad-A where SPACE-X continues to press-on with their work at this Launch Pad.

Along Cape Road we witness some of the most beautiful sky with strong Thunderstorm approaching from the South and so, we increased our pace to Launch Pad-B which is a few more miles North. After passing Launch Pad-B, we continued back South passing Gator Hole and Broadaxe Creek and turned back (returned) to the Saturn Causeway for the long stretch back to the Launch Control Center and thereby our vehicles parked in front of the Vertical Assembly Building (VAB).

I was amazed that the conditions were perfect for this General Fitness ride to start our new Cycling Club.

A BIG thank you goes to Charles and most especially to Jessica who was a trooper on her Trek Verve 3 (city trekking bike) .

A few pictures!

Hey guys,

I finally captured a COLD START of my 1992 Toyota Camry XLE with the 2.2 Liter Gasoline Engine after cleaning the Idle Air Control Valve.

Cleaning the IAC makes a world of difference!
