After a scrumptious breakfast at the Diamond H B&B, we started today’s ride in a light rain. By the time it stopped raining, about an hour later, we were pretty soaked. A few drizzles here and there but no more rain. We would come upon wet roads, but somehow we avoided the rain. Lots and lots of hills, but at least the wind was not a factor today. We got a little lost in Comfort, TX, but no big deal.
We arrived at tonight’s destination in Blanco, TX around 4 pm after a 77 mile ride. Tired but not as tired as last night. Got barked at several times but not chased except for dogs in fenced yards.
I’m having a mechanical issue. My best guess is a bearing in my crank shaft is shot. The noise started around 25 miles into today’s ride, but doesn’t seem to affect the pedalling. I plan to call Frank to get his opinion on what to do. My hope is I can continue to ride L4 and replace the bearings when I get home. We will be near a bike store tomorrow if it has to be repaired in order to continue.
Really enjoying everyone’s company. We will be touring the LBJ Presidential Library tomorrow and having dinner in Austin, after a 42 mile day. Should be one of the highlights of L4.
