Nice as it was to see my friends in Germany, I’m happy to be back in southern Texas. And even if it is terribly windy today, I’ve ridden my bike – the Stevens with its 30-speed drivetrain because of the wind – today, for just a little more than 10 miles. But, being out of shape as I currently am, was enough. For the next few days I’ll be working to get myself ready for the 3rd LBJ 100 Bicycle Tour. I’ve signed up for the 44-mile route. We’ll see, if I can manage that or have to cut it short. Or, if I can even do the 65 miles.
Talking of Germany: I brought back quite a few bicycling guides as I really would like to do some longer rides there some time. More about that in a future posting.
