Riding in the hill country of Texas has been beautiful. The road surfaces are very much improved and the scenery is very pretty.
Today is a windy, cloudy day. The sun finally comes out late in the afternoon.
Unfortunately we still haven’t had the chance to take advantage of those (rumored) prevailing winds from West to East. In fact today we spend the day fighting a strong headwind and our stats reflect that:
Start City: Blanco, TX
End city: Lockhart, TX
Total miles to date: 1595
Pedaling time: 4 hours, 20 minutes
Avg. speed: 13.9 mph
Feet climbed: 3400
Fatigue factor: 6.5 out of 10
Wind: SE 10-20 mph, headwind for entire day
Road condition: 4 out of 5
Temperature extremes: 65 at ride start, 72 at ride finish
We split a sandwich and then we split a mini apple pie.
Lockhart is our overnight stop and as we pass through the town we stop to admire the county courthouse.
They don’t make them like this anymore.
Today my camera told me that it’s battery was exhausted…after riding for 60 miles in a headwind I know exactly how it felt!
Tomorrow we are looking at an unfavorable weather forecast, and hoping for the best!
