Inaugural TEXAS HUNDRED set for June 3rd outside Austin,TX

Riders will encounter sweeping landscapes and some local wildlife, including zebras, ostriches, llamas and longhorns. There will also be a beginner-friendly 20-mile option, and all participants will be treated to the best after-party out there.

Day 38: Silsbee Texas to Merryville Louisiana
Friday April 21, 2017, 54 miles (87 km) – Total so far: 2,093 miles (3,368 km)
Today was another good day to be riding the Southern Tier route. The roads were smooth with wide shoulders and there was little traffic. It did warmer today, perhaps 83 degrees for a brief period. For much of the ride I was going north so I actually had a tailwind.

I talked to the Ohio riders who were going to stay here today as one of them, Mike, had to get back to his home remodeling business. But they were going to a replacement driver fly in to support the three remaining riders through to Saint Augustine. I joked about how they all seemed to get along so well. Two of them, Steve and Mike are both MG car buffs and we talked about their hobby. I don’t know if they will catch up to me in the …
