I had the time, but I didn’t have the gumption for a long ride. That, and the triple digit temps of a Texas summer, suggested that a lakeside micro tour would be just the thing.
I rolled out at 5:30am, and followed my headlight beam down a combination of paved and not-paved roads to the State Park.
A suitable spot was claimed a little after sunrise. Lots of shade, and a perfect breeze off the lake.
Given how much I enjoy breakfast, it is too easy to adopt the brilliant Bilbo Baggins practice of a second breakfast.
Sugar and caffiene. Everything you want, nothing you need.
Life at the height of luxury.
Don’t always take me literally when I say I’ve been “out on the bike for five hours”.
Sometimes it is more about “out” than…”on the bike”.
