May 13, Mother's Day, and Jeff dedicated the day's ride to his mother, Harriet. Although she never completely understood his cycling obsession, she also never stood in his way. Undoubtedly, she would have shook her head at the ride Jeff did on this day in her honor. Take a look, 54 miles and 6,700 ft. of climbing in the heart of Appalachia's coal country -- Meadowview to Haysi VA. A feat of strength and endurance, all honoring the memory of Mom. Tomorrow, Jeff leaves Virginia behind, with little regret for the unrelenting climbs, and fond memories of the beauty of the area and the great people he met there.
