We spent the weekend on the lake, just fishing, swimming, and having a good cookout. There isn’t much more to say, it was as it always is, fantastic.
My daughters both play Lacrosse (this is my youngest) and sometimes they sneak into my blog. 🙂
My kids are all water babies, and after we had a nice picnic, they hit the water. That’s my oldest boy (the one who mountain bikes with me) on the right, escorting his sister along the deep-water edge. Just a few feet out, the water drops off almost cliff like to over 100 feet. It’s actually used by local dive companies as their advanced open water training area. I was certified here by PADI
almost 25 years ago.
I did my own little “Tour De Trinity” around Fort Worth Thursday, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I started adjacent to my hotel and turned around in Gateway Ball Park
. I totalled right at 40 miles and it was beautiful.
There were several stand out areas that I want to highlight, but the city is gorgeous overall, I honestly feel that its the town that Austin should have been if it had grown up right.
The trail runs along the levee on either side of the Trinity river as it flows through Fort Worth. I rode mostly on the south side, other than for a short piece through town where I crossed over to the other side as the trail required.
I need to clean up and edit a few photos to post up here, more to follow tonight.
The spring classics are my favorite races of the year, and of course, Paris-Roubaix is the most popular of those. So much drama this year with VanAvermat looking to keep his run alive, Tommke’s last season, and indeed last professional road race, and so many hungry young racers.
In the US its hard to get, I have a subscription to NBC Sports Gold, which today is worthless because their login server is broken. (You had one job…) but the always reliable steephill.tv has links to several good broadcasts. Currently I’m watching Eurosport on ustream.tv.
This is why I love Roubaix –
