Well we started out the door and immediately turned around as a heavy shower broke and would have drenched us if we had left 10 minutes earlier. After 40 minutes, the rains stopped and off we went. The wind gods were smiling on us today because we had a tail wind most of our 47+ miles. We were flying when it was directly at our backs and when it wasn’t, WOW was it a bear. The last 3 miles we were on a frontage road for I35. No wind break at all. We had a crosswind from left to right with gusts up to 30 mph. I seriously considered walking my bike.When the wind gusted, I had to lean left into the wind to keep upright. It was scary.
As planned, we spent the afternoon at the LBJ Presidential Library at the Univ. of Texas. It brought back so many memories from my high school and college days. The three assassinations, the race riots, the Viet Nam war, the lottery, the college campus sit-ins, even at Villanova. They were crazy times we grew up in. I won’t soon forget that museum.
The good news–whatever was clicking on my bike, stopped. Could it have been caused by the rainy/wet weather yesterday? I am hoping it doesn’t return. We’ll see.Three more days of riding.
