What a great feeling to get back out on the road again. My bike was in the shop for a few days last week so it was nice to get it back. I rode Friday morning and that went well. Saturday was incredibly windy. Serious gusts as a result of the cold front that blew in so I need not mention the cold. Even with layered clothing, my belly was CHILLY when I came home and I did have to cut my ride short because the wind was just too much for me to fight.
Today I wanted to travel FAR but I knew my time was limited when I was reminded to get back in time for a kiddie birthday party.I headed west on Parmer Lane until it hit the 29 Junction. It's beautiful out here, Longhorn cattle on the side of the road, very little traffic, a fair number of other cyclists traveling, and lots of decent hills. These hills are not like the hills on 360 but it's still a great place to ride and a good place to train. I did 35 miles in 2 1/2 hours which included one stop to snack and one stop to call home.
Next weekend I hope to ride out to Marble Falls. From the Galleria, south of the Dam, it should be 63 miles round trip. Hmmm, this will be the day after the tamalada at James and Elma's house so I better not eat and drink too much. If you guys want to do something else on Sunday, let me know. Otherwise, I'll try to get some better pictures on that trip.
