From my driveway to High's in Comfort, TX. The round trip of 43 miles. My longest ride, ever.
Along the way I was passed by two young and curvy females on road bikes. The thought came unbidden as their tightly clad posteriors grew smaller and smaller in the distance...
I need a new, faster, bike!
I didn't try to take their photo but on my way into Comfort I did happen to snap images of some alpacas (I guess that's what they were). These seemed to be either very young or miniature. Much smaller than the ones I normally see on ranches around the area.

After putting my phone away it was time for me to reach the apex of my course, a small but delighful cafe and store known as "Highs" on Main St. in Comfort.
I had a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich with tomato on (what else in Texas?) Texas toast. Then it was time to turn back the way I came, slogging through headwinds for much of the trip.
My previous longest ride had been 29 and today I did 43. The extra 14 miles was a LOT for someone as new to riding as I am. I want to thank my new Aerotech bib shorts and Chamois Butt'r, Monster energy drinks and Trigger, my bike who puts up with a lot of idiocy.
