Rode 50 miles in the Collin Classic bike rally this morning, with 3000 of my best friends. Felt good- started out relatively cool (70's) before the heat set in later in the ride. I did discover that Collin County has some crappy roads and even crappier drivers. Lots of idiots trying to weave in and out of the throngs of cyclists, and getting pissy and angry.
I did the Richardson Wild Ride recently, and overall the Wild Ride is better. It took 30 minutes to park at the Collin County site, we had to stop and wait at way too many lights, lots of bad roads, 30 minute line to get food afterward (which was just small BBQ sandwich and chips), the showers only had one setting- scalding hot. But was still a good time. Now I just need to get a new bike..
