careful what you wish for - you may get it
I had been complaining about not enough time in the hills - not any more, after yesterday. It was a busy cycling weekend. BHP held a cycling safety clinic on Saturady morning, and one of our guys led a ride through Houston (advertised as an "Urban Assault Ride"!) before the clinic. The ride was very enjoyable but we went quite slowly, as there was a large group and only one of us knew the route. Every other light we hit Downtown was red, which didn't help. Sunday morning found me up at the crack to drive 50 miles for a 47 mile ride. The clocks went forward so it was a very short night. The ride was though very pretty countryside in Montgomery county, including a section through Sam Houston National forest, and it was a pleasant, sunny morning, but quite windy, and rolling terrain all the way, so I got my wish!
