Day 31 – La Grange, TX to Mexican Hill Ranch,TX – 84.39 miles – Elevation: +3,264 / -3,245 feet
Today was another long day with a 88.6 mile route. Unfortunately, the day started with another rider going to the hospital. It wasn’t a crash this time. Instead, he was experiencing heart attack like symptoms. His current status is unknown but I understand he is still in the hospital. The number of core riders that ride and finish the routes each day seems to be dwindling greatly.
There aren’t many new things to take pictures of in this part of Texas, so I thought I would share a snapshot in the life of a rider when we are staying in a community center or school gymnasium with you. If you can’t deal with sharing close sleeping quarters, bathrooms, or shower (many times with only one men’s and one woman’s shower and toilet) with about 60 other people then a ride like this may not be for you.
However, the secret to a good night’s sleep is in my hand.
