Week 4 has begun. We left Fort Clark Springs at 8 this morning and headed East on Rt. 90 to Uvalde and arrived around noon. Temperature stayed at 79 and the clouds were thick but thankfully it never did rain except for a brief misting. The Fort Clark Springs motel was decent. No breakfast service so we had snacks in our rooms for breakfast. Tonight we are in the Holiday Inn Express in Uvalde and it’s great. Already did the hot tub and pool immediately after our ride. Tomorrow we rejoin the Adventure Cycling route in Bandera. I will miss Texas route 90. We have been on this road for about 500 miles, since Van Horn in West Texas.
We drove from San Antonio, about 120 miles, to start where we finished last years ride in Brackettville. Last year we finished in Brackettville by riding an extra 30 miles from Del Rio which is the end of map 3 on the adventure Cycling Southern Tier route across the USA.
History of Fort Clark.
Very humid this morning. We all wear camel backs for hydration now. I really needed it today. I was thirsty.
Wind turbines in the distance. Cross wind today which beats a head wind anytime on the road.
Tim reading historical roadside marker. These are all over the roads and they have unique numbers so there might be a website directory.
Only one lane over this bridge. The tractor trailer drivers are much more bicycle friendly than pick up drivers. They slow down and move over. The pick ups don’t do that but we all have mirrors and watch behind as well as to the front.
