Yesterday I did my second “Karnes County 42-Miler”, and this time I had the great company of Donna, J.D. and Gary, members of the Beeville Stingers bicycle club, who had come up from Beeville to join me in the ride. I really enjoyed their company – thank you, Donna, J.D. and Gary – and they kept me going at quite a good speed. We averaged 14.8 mp/h, and that with quite a bit of wind [15 to 20 mp/h sustained], which we especially felt between Helena and Runge, where it could blow over open fields unhindered by any trees or bushes. But it was manageable. And after Runge the wind helped – mostly, that is. It was quite hot, too, with temps well over 90. But with a stop at the gas station & convenience store in Runge, and at the shell station in Kenedy, we did it.
And here are some pictures:
