    News Flash Carl-The posted speed limit is the LIMIT...you know, as in MAXIMUM speed. Bikes and cyclists have the same right to use the roads as do motorists. You may wish to slow down. The life you save might be your own...or loved ones.

    It is an amazing sight to see-people taking back the roads and bridges from the gas guzzlers that are supporting the economy of the middle east. Go bikers! Be healthy and have fun. I'll make sure I drive slowly and carefully behind you as we share the road.

    If you can't do the posted speed limit, get off the road!

    So why doesn't Pitt Hospital sponsor something like this here in Greenville? Can you imagine 2,000 people filling our hotels, eating in our restaurants, being healthy, raising funds, and using next to no resources? What an economic win for New Bern and loss for Greenville!
