Hell Week Day 2 – LBJ Ramble

, , | UltraRob | Sunday, March 12th, 2006 at 3:51 pm

Today was a lot like yesterday with lots of rolling Texas country side on quiet roads. Also like yesterday there were countless cattle guards. Most of them are actually a lot smoother than the ones I’m used to. It stayed a little cloudy until middle of the afternoon so it took longer to heat up than it did yesterday. The high temperature for the day was 82 degrees. It was more humid today than yesterday and fairly breezy. It definitely was a good day to be in a group which I was the majority of the time.

The official mileage for today was 99.4 miles but with riding from my camp site I got 105 miles. That means I actually measured a few tenths less than the official route. It felt like there were more rollers today and I would have guessed more total climbing than yesterday but the climbing came in at 3819. My average speed was only slightly slower than yesterday although I can feel some fatigue in the legs.

I plan to ride the 200k brevet tomorrow. I haven’t seen the route sheet yet but it should be right around 124 miles. Since it’s a little longer, we start at 8:00 instead of at 8:30 when the A rides start.

Update: Texas Hell Week photos and posts for each day.

    What kind of bike are you riding (please don’t say ‘road bike’)?

    I’ll bet 82 feels awfully hot compared to what you’re used to!

    But I am riding a road bike. I left the mountain bike at home. Ok, it’s a Tommasini Sintesi. Steel frame and fork. My results page has the best shot of it.
