Day 29 – Blanco, TX to Lockhart, TX – 63.38 miles – Elevation: +2,267 / -2,979 feet
It was a chilly and windy morning to start the 62 mile ride today and it didn’t warm up much all day. The weather is very hard to adjust to. Yesterday I was riding in shorts and a short sleeve jersey and I was soaked with perspiration. Today I was riding in my winter gear and I was still cold at times.
Today was also a wake up call on how dangerous cycling can be. One of the riders crashed and had to be taken to the hospital. Unfortunately, it looks likely that he will not be able to finish the ride. One of my biggest fears is that I will hurt myself and not be able to finish the ride. OK, maybe my biggest fear is getting killed by a crazy driver but not finishing is high on my list.
