There's a reason the South Texas Valley more than doubles its population every winter. Average daily high in Dec-Jan-Feb is low- to mid-70s, avg. daily low is low- to mid-50s. I loved the palm trees blowing in the breeze and the green parrots on the telephone poles. It's dead flat. I was not there long enough, however, to discover which of the myriad of small agricultural lanes linked into pleasant cycling routes.

Oh, one last thing! Take your passport, if you have one, because you will be stopped (in Texas) and questioned by the Border Patrol at some point and the better USA ID you have the less time it takes.
