So here's the map for the MS150 course... People don't realize that rest stops are pretty close together... so if you can ride 12 miles straight, you get a rest. My goal this year is to stop every other rest stop.
All the news here in Houston is about the weather. There's no avoiding getting wet while riding on Saturday, but the conclusion there is get to La Grange (the overnight spot) as quickly and SAFELY as we can to avoid the rain.
I am not so much worried about getting wet... I'm nowhere sweet enough that I'd melt, but I am worried about safety. I took a downhill last year at 39 mph on a dry road... makes me a little nervous doing that on the wet road with lots of beginner riders! *cringe* I'll trust that I will be be safe and taken care of.
I guess part of the prize finish in Austin will be the nice weather, along with that feeling of accomplishment. :) I'll be posting mobile uploads to my Facebook Page throughout the ride, wet as it may be.... and, of course, Twittering with my tweeps. :) I'm really not sure I get all the buzz about Twitter, but I'm trying it out. LOL
Lots to do today to prep and pack, so I'm off!
