On the Road Again...

Had a great ride this morning. Managed to get in about 28 miles before having to be back to start on housework.I had originally planned to ride out Santa Clara Road to Zeuhl, then back to Cibolo, but the road was closed and the detour was less than optimal for my road bike.Maybe I need to buy an aluminum frame for some of these types of rides, but I don’t think I will run into a lot of chip seal once I am back in Germany.

On top of it all I had a great playlist running this morning. I had put it together for Agnieszka, my friend in Scotland, but haven’t been able to get it to her. On this morning’s ride I put it on shuffle (it’s 232 songs, 16 hours, 48 minutes of music) and started out. Bryan Adams, Ozzy, Lita Ford, Vixen, Scandal, Chicago, The Outfield, Night Ranger, Toto, The Eagles, Bad English, Blue Oyster Cult, Boston, the Cars, and of course the Boss, Bruce Springsteen.

While I was out riding, Agawa was riding as well so we were sending pictures of the landscapes back and forth. Unfortunately the fields of Marion and Cibolo don’t really compete with the Scottish coast. Looking forward to getting back to Europe and biking. I wish I had been more into it when I was there.

So two weeks left of summer break, then back to what is looking like my last semester. Hoping to move next summer.
