    Peach Pedal Pictures

    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.



    Rest stops





    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.

    Ah, so that's why we only had 6 riders on our club's breakfast ride yesterday!
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    The guy with the boom box is Bikin' Mike, www.bikinmike.com. He organizes some rides (Tour Dallas, Collin Classic, Happy New Rear) and shows up with his sound trailer at quite a few other rides.

    I tried to do a 200k ride yesterday, and quit a little before the halfway point due to heat, wind, and being tired. But on the way to it, I saw a couple of cars headed west on I-20 with bicycles.

    Yeah- Bikin' Mike is cool. You gotta hand it to the guy, he really loves cycling. (and his music!)

    .

    I didn't know that. I'm on his email list but we live out here near P.K. so I didn't recongize him, though now the pic of he and the trailer look familiar. We do Tour Dallas every year.

    I have a few pics, including one of my computer after it had cooled off in the shade. It reads 106. It had read 108.5 about 1/2 mile prior to me stopping in the shade in major pain from my toe.
