Most people flying back late at night, getting home past midnight, wouldn’t think about getting up early the next morning (actually the same morning!) for a bike ride, but I’m not most people, and there’s really nothing quite as rejuvenating as a bike ride. Especially with temps warm enough you don’t have to worry about leg warmers or base layers, something that may change next week when they’ve put rain into the forecast. Rain? What’s that?
Kevin, Kevin, Eric, John, new guy named Mike and Zack today; not quite the group of 11 on Tuesday, when I was off pretending I could make a difference for bike dealers at meetings in Austin, but maybe this was quality vs Tuesday being quantity? Since it was Thursday we rode up through the park, but started a bit late when Kevin (the pilot) promptly got a flat tire. No records, but anytime I can get to the top through the park, in something under 29 minutes, I’m good.
