I made the excuse plenty of times, “I can’t do it. It won’t work.” But this time I convinced myself, “it will work.” What was I holding back from and making excuses: riding the train from Raleigh to somewhere. This past weekend, I saw an event in Jamestown, NC with Triad trucks and thought, today has to be the day. First I looked to see how far Jamestown was from the nearest Amtrak station, High Point. Then I looked at how I would get there by bike. About 5-6 miles, it looked attainable. So, I went to amtrak.com bought a ticket, pumped air in my tires, and drove to Cary’s Amtrak Station.
