Short Sleeve Jersey Bike Ride Day

A beautiful short sleeve jersey bike ride day around the Kingwood area. The route selection today put me on the “Oakhurst – Cumberland – Valley Ranch” streets and roads. A partly cloudy, mid 80’s temperature and a 6 mph SW breeze made for an enjoy able bike ride totaling 32.56 miles. My legs were not fully recovered from the 40+ miles on yesterday’s ride but it wasn’t too tough.

Nothing out of the ordinary happened on the ride although some of the streets and roads look different when I bicycle them in the opposite direction. I did see a few “casual” bicyclists at the beginning and end of the ride.

I ended up biking 180.84 miles this week, making up some of the miles lost due to weather and other activities. For March I stand at 317.56 miles (54% of my goal). With 11 potential bike ride days left this month I think my 586 mile goal is in sight. Riding 9 different days put the average ride at 35.28 miles. If I average the miles I will need to ride about 8 times to reach my goal.

Spring arrives tomorrow and the weather looks very spring-like for most of the week. Cycling will be on my agenda.

In 1999 I had a burning desire to create a web site focused on Texas bicycling. Over the years this web site has existed many people have visited. As I think of information I need to bicycle I add them to the web site.
