This morning I got up at 7:00, filled my CamelBak with sports drink, drove out to Boerne and got to the starting point for the Wheelmen’s ride about two minutes after they’d left. Ooops. But I managed to catch some folks who were taking it easy, and I had a very happy ride of 42 miles through the greenest Texas countryside of recent memory.
At various points we shared the road with a bull, a flock of sheep, four does and a buck. The does had just charged across the road in front of us when the buck appeared out of nowhere. He was maybe three meters ahead of us and he leaped over a fence with grace that I cannot describe. It was beautiful.
I got home, took a shower, and now I am off to grab some lunch and sit in with the afternoon knitters at the Yarn Barn.
