Back in the Saddle!

Wow! It has been four months since I last rode my bike. Blame busy-ness at work, wet weather, high winds… I suppose one can always come up with an excuse. Enough of that.

About 2.5 miles into this ride I stopped for a water break. Huffing and puffing, I wondered how long a ride this would really turn out to be. After a few minutes in the shade and a refreshing drink of water, I caught my stride and managed to log just over 6 additional miles on a beautiful Saturday morning.

My trusty Schwinn offers an easy & comfortable ride

Starting with the 2.5 mile loop trail at Terry Hershey Park in west Houston, I rode on through the British Petroleum office complex, posed for a selfie in front of one of our favorite Mexican restaurants – I could’ve downed one of their awesome margaritas had they been open – then through a couple of neighborhoods as I winded my way home.

The original Lupe Tortilla offers a really good Margarita – just not this early in the day!

It is good to be back in the saddle. No more excuses!
