Well I have to say, I absolutely love Austin. It is everything and morethan what I expected. Great people; a beautiful town; and a wonderfulactive community. Just an awesome place and I can't wait to go back.
Last night my hosts took me out for a 25 mile night ride around the city.We started at one of there favorite bars and ended at another. Given that Iwas riding an almost new bike it was a great warm up before I headed backout on the trail.
Leaving Austin I was immediately faces with big hills, something that I wasreally not used to. Thank goodness for the new gearing. The ride meanderedout of the city, across the Colorado river and then headed west.
More hills came and went, making me think that I would have been reallyhurting if I had to do this with a single speed. I am very grateful forthose gears.
My destination for the night was Wimberly, a town about 50 miles fromAustin. The ACA has made arrangements with the EMS folks that allowedcyclists to camp outside of the station. The folks there were awesome,making me feel right at home. I can't tell you bow nice it is to know youhave a place to stay at the end of the day. Thanks gals and guys of theWimberly EMS department, I really appreciated your hospitality.
