Got out with friends for a ride in the Texas Hill Country southwest of Dripping Springs, Texas (west of Austin). Temps in mid-70s, humid, rain in the forecast. Little Sunday traffic on country roads. Lots of hills, but none of them killers. This has to be my favorite ride in the area.
I'll bet we saw fewer than 10 vehicles (mostly pickups) on the roads all morning. The stats: 34.3 miles, 14.7 mph avg. We wrapped up the ride, met some other friends at a cafe for lunch and bike talk, and pulled into our garage just as the skies opened up with a much-needed downpour. Can't get much better than this!
