It was raining this morning when we came down to start our ride, so we delayed it by about a half hour or so, but finally got on the road by about 8:30 a.m. It stayed cloudy and drizzly for about the next 60-90 minutes, but it did eventually clear up, as my photos and one video from the ride today will show:
Our second break of today’s ride was just outside an over-55 adult community called Wimberly Springs. We sat of these rocks to get out of a stiff wind which, for the most part, really helped us today.
I only took this one video today, but I hope you enjoy it nevertheless!
We rode about 48 miles today and after getting to our hotel, we showered, changed, had a quick beer in Beth’s room while we planned out the rest of the day, and then had a pizza lunch at a shopping mall in Kyle before driving into Austin. There we visited the LBJ Presidential Museum and Library on the campus of the University of Texas in Austin. Here are some pictures I took in the museum.
After the library, we walked about a half mile to The Salty Sow restaurant in Austin. Our meals were excellent, and they even had a cactus garden which we walked past on our way back to the car to drive home.
Tomorrow we ride to Bastrop, TX, which I am guessing is about 50-60 miles from where we’re staying tonight.
