Saturday morning’s ride was a cyclist’s dream. Warm, but not too hot, at least not initially. No threat of rain, but just enough cloud cover to hide the sun early in the ride and prevent it from heating up quickly. A light breeze fanned us but didn’t push us backwards when riding south into the wind. Bob and I pedaled the 40 mile loop – long enough to make it interesting but short enough to keep it fun.
We and our shadow.
Louisiana road kill. Or maybe he couldn’t find his way back to the cooley and died of dehydration.
Feeling good at the first rest stop.
For those of you good at “What’s Different About This Picture” puzzles, yes I changed shirts. My friends Dean and Keyon Bernal own a Nissan dealership in Silsbee, Texas and had team jerseys made.For more information on Tour LaFitte, click here. We had a good ride. In hindsight, we could have done 50 miles. Maybe another year . . .
