Happy Birthday LeeAnne
Austin is the home of Americas (and perhaps the worlds) greatest cyclist, Lance "Big Tex" Armstrong. Most cyclists live in places like Boulder or San Diego but he seems happy here. After reading his biography I was excited to see why. Now I see why he can be so surly.
Unlike California, most of the roads do not have bike lanes. And most of the motorists dont like cyclists. Often around Santa Barbara people cheer or yell words of encouragement when they see a lone cyclist, especially if its on a pass or rigorous terrain. Today I had some guy in a big truck flip me off, and not because I was impeding traffic, he and I were alone on the road.
Oh well, its still pretty good riding. There are no mountains but many steep, little hills.
Some friends from the wedding went for a run today. We spotted the highest point we could find and ran up it. At the summit we saw it was called "Old Baldy". I thought that was funny considering that the highest point of my 40-peak day is called "Old Baldy". Of course, this one is about 10,000 lower.
