Tour LaFitte 2012




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.

Congratulations--40 miles! At my best, I could now pedal about 40 feet. :)

I'm so glad you had a great ride. I love the photos! I don't know how you could have taken the shadow photo....

Jan, sure you could. Just takes a little practice. CHM, we were riding south, so the sun was to our left, making the shadow to our right. I just held the camera up and snapped.

I'm glad to see that you are still using the tandem. Liz and I rode TOSRV last weekend on ours. Saturday was beautiful; on Sunday we had a light drizzle most of the day.

We often think of you...

Hey Kevin! Great to hear from you. Yeah, Bob doesn't get out much, and even suggested selling the tandem, but I don't want to. I still enjoy riding it. Wow, Liz did TOSRV. I'm impressed! Do keep in touch. We think of you all, too.
