Real Ale Ride 2010

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to cycle the Real Ale Ride 2010 with friends.

The ride takes place in beautiful Blanco, TX which makes for picture perfect Texas hill country cycling. What I did forget about Blanco is that the terrain is pretty hilly. There were several times throughout the ride where you saw signs about steep grade ahead… they weren’t lying. In the end, we went for the 65 mile route and finished in under 4 hours.

My personal highlight of the race was devouring a delicious ice cream cookie by KoolKones

So good! I hope these cookies appear at other races in Austin!

The Rosedale Ride 2010

Today I had the opportunity to do the Rosedale Ride in Austin.

The Rosedale School is AISD’s only school for children with multiple disabilities and the ride is all about raising money for the school. I did the race with one of my great friends and we did the 42.4 mile route and finished in about 2:30!

After we finished… in true Texas style… there was some serious grilling of BBQ…

On top of that, I spotted an FSM logo!

I love Austin. Tomorrow I have a 30k trail race to conquer!
