It turned out to be a good bike riding day in spite of the strong winds. Luella talked me into going to the Sinton Chamber of Commerce. So Sturdy Steed came out of the Truck and we go riding. My library book was finished so it was taken along to give back to the library.
Anna and Peggy are a nice pair of folks to visit there at the COC. We talked for around thirty minutes. It was an exceptionally friendly time, but that is the way everyone in Sinton has been.
From there it was a gentle ride safe down the town streets to the library. After the delivery of the library book safely back to the librarian, it was time to explore. There is one little stretch of highway near the library that is dangerous to ride on a bike. It is a busy highway and no shoulder available. Today the exploring along the roads behind the library lead to an apartment complex. When you ride through the apartment complex, you come out onto the highway where a good shoulder starts again. This allows you to skip the very dangerous section.
Taking the highway shoulder lead me to the loop around Sinton and a great shoulder for biking. Going into town was difficult because a strong head wind had me down to six mph and third gear. Going back on the loop with that miserable wind behind me was a wild fast ride. At one point that was a little downhill, the bike computer showed us doing twenty one mph without peddling. Needless to say it was an easy five miles back to Comfort Castle.
The practice field was mowed today by the maintenance folks so this evening so golf ball whacking was attempted. My 60 degree wedge is an excellent wedge, but it cannot by itself make up for my bad swings. Nevertheless it was a great way to try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
