Great day despite the rough chipseal roads. Great hills. A chance to really stretch the legs.
The downhills would have been fantastic…had it not been for the road surface that defies all attempts at enjoyable skating – chipseal. But the wind did just as it was foretold. A light westerly in the morning, and then a nice northerly to blow me all the way from Bandera south to Hondo.
In Hondo I met up with US90, the highway that will lead me to Del Rio. Wide shoulders, smooth riding surfaces, and flat terrain await.
Thank you to First Baptist Church for letting me stay in their under-construction fellowship hall for the night. A warm spot to lay my head is always appreciated!
