Men, women and children from all over North Texas came out to the 2011 Dallas Tweed Ride. The ride started at Dealy Plaza in downtown Dallas, visited the historic Turner House and made a stop the Bishops Arts District for Cliff Fest. A big thank you to Bike Friendly Oak Cliff for hosting such a fun event.
I must also thank my sweet husband, who rolled up his sleeves and changed my back tire in his Sunday best. This photo, of the two of us, was taken by the always dapper Chris of Biking in Dallas. All others were taken by me.

I was blissfully unaware that it was slightly downhill with a tailwind, until I turned around.
Today on my ride I learned that when you get lost you go twice as far and climb twice as many hills. I learned that taking the easy route isn’t always the most fun. I learned that when you take the wrong turn you can discover a hidden tree-lined road in the middle of the city. I had burning lungs, tired legs and a happy heart.
Toying with the idea of declaring 2012 as the year for my first century ride. Better go put my big girl pants on.
Legs are complaining but spirits are high.
I love a man on a bicycle. Especially when they take me home and give me sugar.
