We had strong cross and head winds the whole way. This slowed our pace but did help keep us from overheating.
We crossed some beautiful terrain and saw cows in all shapes and sizes. I worked hard to protect Diana from the wind. She repaid me by leaving me in the dust on many of the rollers including all of the ones that were being filmed. She is one strong rider!
In the end, the ride came to 108 miles and it was almost 6 pm when we finally reached our hotel.
After the ride I met up with Ron Baughnan, a close college friend of mine, and Jimmy Montreuil, a 2nd cousin who was in Houston for a bike race. Jimmy and I had never met but followed each other on Strava. It was great seeing him in person.

I'll add more pictures later and write more but am just too tired to tackle that tonight.
