Great Ride with my crew but damn!  Couldn’t seem to get my breath at all it was so humid!  Very little break from the head wind, we always seemed to be going in to the direction lol.  But i guess the big “buzz words” about riding in Houston are “wind, humidity and heat”.  Triple Threat!  huyahhh!

Interesting and gorgeous ride!  A simple 25 mi loop out near Lake Livingston.  Started out chilly/cloudy and rainy but wasn’t bad.  About 1/2 the roads were awful to ride on but boy the area was BEAUTIFUL!!!  Just really pretty stretches of rolling hills (and a few monsters-368ft climb- which looking at my past history is 1 of the biggest climbs I’ve done- biggest of course is the Anderson Beast Hill) with a road lined with overgrown trees and miles of ranches with perfectly trimmed lawns and wooden fences.  Saw some pretty horses too !  3 of which were at the fence so I stopped to say hi.  The white one was rather friendly.

Looking at my biggest Elevation gain history, this ride ranked up to #1 if you take into consideration the shorter distance.
