Post Ike Rides

We've had fine riding weather the past couple of weekends. It's been getting cooler so we've moved our ride starts in Fulshear from 7:30 to 8am. Danny has ridden with us and has, as usual, provided invaluable technical assitance, from adjusting Z's seat on his V2F to fixing a broken spoke on the Flevo.

There was quite a crowd in the Fulshear area this past Saturday and I can't account for it except for the glorious weather. Here's Liz explaining the joys of riding backwards to a couple of DFers.

George Bush Park
Aimee and I decided to check out George Bush Park this past Friday for the first time since Hurricane Ike.
All went well until we turned south to traverse the body of the Park. We didn't get very far before we came to a screeching halt at the water's edge. Apparnetly the storm dropped lots of water in the park and it hasn't drained off yet. We turned around and with a couple of double backs, got 20 miles for the ride.
