Enjoyed a chilly, windy ride with 4,500 of my best cycling buddies this morning at Tour Dallas. It's a family & amateur focused ride- the longest route was only 30 miles, including a lap around White Rock Lake.
I parked at the north end of the Katy Trail and rode it to the downtown starting line, to both avoid traffic and parking issues and to get another 10 miles in. The first few miles went really slow, as expected, but it opened up. Mostly well run, with a few missing cops at intersections and some questionable route choices.
One question I had- why do the people in Lakewood have such terrible roads? They have money and should be able to influence their local representatives to take care of them. Was like riding offroad sometimes.
Several more bike rides are coming up this spring - Wild Ride, Collin Classic are a couple good ones, with more miles available - up to 100K.
