    The best advice I can give you if you haven't ridden hills yet is to just be patient in Chappell Hill. I always call this ride the humbler, because no matter how well I am riding each year, I wind...

    Yeah I assumed it would be. Slept in and built new pantry shelves today instead. Assuming it isn't raining in the morning, I am going to go out and do the 75 mile route on the Bluebonnet Express.

    I have a friend who is friends with the girl that crashed on the R2R ride there. She is fine. Xrays showed nothing broken, so just some cuts and bruises.

    I did the 60 mile route. I got a bit of a burn too, but mine was mostly from sitting on a bench in the square after the ride waiting for my wife to get back from working at breakpoint 3. And great...
