We decided on a leisurely start this morning since we figured our ride was less than 50 miles. Every day the road surfaces have been improving and we seem to have less chip seal roads. Today’s roads were a combination of state roads and farm roads (FM). I don’t remember any ranch roads today. The county roads still seem to be dirt roads.
Oil derricks and tanks were frequent sites. And dogs chasing us. I have no idea how Mark came up with the photo of a lunging dog for his post. It wasn’t that bad but it seemed every house had a dog that barked and ran after us (mostly on the other side of a fence).
I was struck by the amount of construction going on in Bastrop, our destination today. We rode into town on a road that looked like it was being widened and repaved. Commercial buildings were going up all around us and the Hampton Inn we are staying at seems brand new.
Only two more days of riding. My bike is working fine. Still wondering what caused the clicking. As always, lots and lots of laughs. Life is good.
