I managed to forget just about everything for this ride, BUT I surived. Instead of my bike shorts I accidentally brought two jerseys. After unloading our bikes at Bearcat Stadium I realized I'd left my helmet back at my parents and had to go get it. Anyway, the ride was pretty good. Mostly, it was hilly. And windy. HOLY CRAP it was hilly and windy. I don't think I've ever grunted so many expletives under my breath before today. According to my Jawbone UP, I burned over 6,000 calories though! Can't argue with that, right? It was a really fun ride though, and the people were really cool. I'll probably do it again next year. Jeesh.
Even though we were wiped out and sore, we spent the afternoon with my family at the Main Street Arts Festival in Downtown Fort Worth. It's a pretty cool deal! I've been several times before, but it's always different... and more crowded. It's hard to keep my mom under control there too. She wants all the things! We had loads of fun, AND I'm going straight to bed now.
