Driving and Biking in the Big City

The most famous bike ride from Houston to Austin

leave a comment »

It was just last weekend that my boys were riding in the MS 150, which is actually about 180 miles from Houston to Austin. I’ve been a part of the SAG team for most of the 10 years Big Johnny has been biking and fundraising to fight multiple sclerosis. This year, I was on standby only. I once trained for it but have yet to attempt it. My longest haul has been 62 miles in the Tour de Pink to fight breast cancer. I just don’t know that I could ride all day and for two days straight.

What my guys love is the overnight stay in LaGrange where all the bikers hobnob and tell biking stories. Otherwise, I think it can be a pretty dangerous adventure as 13,000 cyclists take to the streets with a goal of raising $17 million. It deserves a bit of respect from a casual, fun biker like me who could clog the streets for the sleeker models.

You never know. Maybe next year.
