Just wanted to post a few of these for all who rode. I did the 40 miler. Discretion became the better part of valor. It was hot and my old heart was running at a pretty high rate so I chickened out and did the shorter route when I came to decision point.
The start. The Texas Irish were present as you can see.
This guy said he should leave me an email. Maybe he's a forum member or someone knows him.
This guy was dragging a boom box.
And perhaps someone will recognize me and my old Trek, soaking up some shade about 2 miles before the end. I get a lot of comments on the water bottles. Some folks don't know what a touring bike is (really).
Regards to all.
