Old San Antonio Road

Today we met at Akin High School for a ride down Old San Antonio Road. There were six of us on the ride today - Mr. P, Little Bro, Sunflower, Martillo, Bunny, and I. It was a beautiful day down here in Texas. I bet you Norsemen get tired of me saying that, eh? There were loads of bikers out today. We saw everything from teams practicing their pacelines to old folks on mountain bikes. It was just a great day all around. Sunflower brought her friend Bunny today. This was the first time I met her, and she turned out to be cool and a pretty good rider. Hopefully she will ride with us again. Big Cat was a no-show and I never heard back from J-Man. Hopefully they can make it out next weekend.

My HR monitor indicated that my average today was 121 bpm with a max of 161 bpm. Ok Ok. So I didn't work that hard today :).

Tomorrow I have to finish unpacking my new office in our new building. On Tuesday I am off to Orange County, CA. I then travel from the OC to Minneapolis on Thursday and return to Austin on Friday evening. It should be a shit week for sure.

Heading down Old San Antonio Road toward Buda. I think Little Bro needs a longer shirt.

Little Bro dicking around as usual.

Bunny having fun on the way back to the cars.

Here? Cold. Wind. Snow. No riding this weekend, and it's bumming me out. Never even made it out of my PJ's today...

Lucky Texas-cyclist bastard! Riding on a sunny Sunday with shorts and short sleeves.
You realize this is like rubbing salt in our wounds, don't you? :^(

Jeff-Sometimes pajama days are not so bad. But when they mess with a riding day, that is different.

Oldman-There is a house for sale up the street from me. I am sure that they would be more than happy to sell it to you.

Alicia-It would be hard to train inside for an event. You should come down and do the Texas Hell Week in March. 8 days of sunny riding in the Texas Hill Country.

Are you neighbors willing to do a swap for a contemporary house on a river in West Michigan? There are no jobs here, but I would be willing to throw in the hot tub to sweeten the deal! :^)
