Slow this morning, so I got a late start. I decided not to go marathon distances, because we need to take Max for a wrist X-Ray (still hurts from his fall on Wed).

This ride was okay. Morning enough to not be HORRIBLY hot, and not much direct sunlight. A couple of traffic lights are laid out to ensure peds are killed (blue walk sign that puts you in conflict with left turning traffic), specifically crossing FM2499 at Dixon.

It was really humid, so I was still drippy, and tried to push through the slog. Still, I think my average speed was only 9.8mph, and I like to target closer to 11 overall. On the flip side, there were more hills and stops on this route.

Anyway, we're off to Austin for Khai's Karate tournament. Part of me wants to rent a bike for a Sunday morning ride, but we're going to be around Braker and I think everyone I know in Austin is south. Since we're heading out Sunday, it would have to be petty early, which makes coordination difficult.
