Rode the DFW Tour de Cure today. This was may second year to ride it. Last year was not enjoyable. The charity rides always say it's not a race. This year, I slowed way down and instead of riding the 60 mile route, trying to go at it hard, I chose the 32. I had a blast! This was my 5th charity ride this year and maybe my favorite. The route was good. Very little wind. It is always hot in N. Texas this time of the year...no big deal, just had to plan for it. It was nice to enjoy the scenery instead of pushing for a faster pace.
My daily ride is always alone so these rides are fun for me and I use them a motivational goals. I meet the most interesting people and usually see some of the same ones at each ride. This one has no major hills, just gentle rollers. The first couple of miles were a lap inside the Texas Motor Speedway. Dang that place is big inside! The finish line was lined with kids armed with super soakers. They even asked before they blasted you.
It was a great day for a bike ride (aren't they all?) and a great bike ride. Thanks for reading.
