63 Miles - Riding With Wid in Rising Star; Lunch in Comanche; Arrival in Hamilton - March 10, 2017
Highway 36 eastbound, some miles out of Rising Star.
Riding With Wid
Wid biked with me from Rising Star to Comanche for 26 miles. He's such a good guy and we had plenty of time to get to know each other.
He's one of those men where I thought, "I wish he lived in Colorado,
because I'd hang out with him more."
Wid told me about his family farm and all that goes with growing and selling hay.
A nice video of us riding ...
Typical Texas scenery along the way.
Arrival in Comanche. A photo of the water tower.
Wid and I biked to David Bridges house ...
... then all three of us had lunch at a Mexican restaurant.
Riding With David Bridges
After lunch, Wid returned to Rising Star, and David and I headed east to Hamilton.
The plan was for David's wife, Nancy, to drive to Hamilton and shuttle him back.
In view of this, I placed my heavy bags (sans my pump and a tube) in Nancy's trunk. I would bike this section on a much lighter bicycle!
Like this morning, I had another guy to ride with, and again, I got to know David better.
He told me about a significant health scare that he recently overcame. He loves being a high school teacher.
He's also very hardcore in his cycling habits. He could have sped miles ahead of me if he wanted, but instead went at an easy pace.
Two more shots of David when we arrived in Gustine.
We passed the Deep Shit Cattle Company. :o)
It was a long ride to Hamilton. At the town square, we got a nice shot of us in front of the courthouse.
Soon upon arriving, Nancy showed up. This is a great shot of them. What a happy-looking couple. :)
