Birthday Ride

“Birthday Ride” Castell, 2020

So, my birthday happened. 🙂 I took the day off and decided to go for a long ride on the north loop near Castell. I rode the south loop a few days ago, so I wanted to compare the two, and I think I prefer the north loop, but both are great.

This time I took my camp chair and a sandwich and took a nice break at the halfway point. It was definitely a good idea, and something I would do again. I actually thought about bringing my camp stove and some ramen but the Texas weather is still quite warm, so I nixed the idea. Maybe when the weather turns colder. 😀

By the way, this was my longest ride (of my adult life), and I felt great afterwards. I also enjoyed riding with the new Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires. The puncture-resistance gives me a bit of peace-of-mind which is welcomed. But even if they do get punctured, I have the tools to make repairs in the field. I’d rather not do that, of course. 😄

  1. Belated Happy Birthday Barron! Usually I can easily remember your birthday because it’s the same day as my Mom’s. We’re doing fine, staying healthy and still working. I’m “semi-retired” as a blogger. I made my blog private but did some finishing touches for 2015. I started my second blog but am woefully behind. I don’t know if I will ever unlock it. My main social media outlet is still FB. I’ll try to “drop by” from time to time. Take care!
