Gruene and Back Again with Miss Jessica

A romantic get away with Miss Jessica. Six feet of human steel and sex appeal. A multi Iron Man finishing triathlete and road bike racer. A faux hawl euro mullet rocking woman’s CAT4 Texas Team Time Trail gold medal champion. Totally pro, super euro, very German.

I am leaving, she is leaving, we are leaving. I am about to fly out of the country and she is leaving the state whatsapp herunterladen für mac oder windows pc. I am coming back for sure. She maybe. It takes a long time to explore the amount of territory she is looking to traverse. If we are lucky we will meet up on another continent in the not so far future. Tour de Afrique?

A bike ride south. 50 miles to Gruene, TX (pronounced green). A small town catering to tubing the river and B&Bs synology photo station album herunterladen. Home of the Tour de Gruene time trial races in November. A chance to go on a nice ride together. A chance for me to do a final check-up ride on my Break Away with the newly installed cable disconnects and load down my black Ortlieb Velocity backpack with twice as much gear as I plan on riding with in Italy. If I don’t end up in agony, carrying the current 30-40lbs, I should be golden with a half load.

This is an approximation of our route:

We left late herunterladen. But this is a vacation. Isn’t the point to not stress about the details. The much loved Austin to Buda route on Old San Antonio road. Then through Kyle to San Marcos. We are making good smooth time. A double rail road crossing with hard edges. I pinch flat, pulling to the side of the road. Jessica u-turns to come back and almost wrecks ps4 spiel fortnite herunterladen. She had flated as well. Two pinch flats, using only two spare tubes. We work in parallel and are up and running in no time. Hunting down the local bike shop is more of a process. Four spare tubes in the bag, we continue on our way.

The Stagecoach Inn. Bluebonnet room. The inn is easily found, right off of Hunter road, 4:47pm amazon filme herunterladen. 2 min check-in, 10 min showers. Claw foot bath tub and walk in shower. Big bed, 8 pillows, musket above the door. Champagne glasses we fill with electrolyte mix, drained in a gulp. Then it is back on the bikes for the short ride into Gruene for an early dinner at the Gristmill. Our table over looks the Guadalupe River, two stories below herunterladen. We arrived early enough to beat the rush and relax with our food. A stroll though an antique shop. Some ice cream while we watch people wander around the town. The sun is setting and we had better get back before it gets too dark on these country roads. It is 9:15pm and we are asleep.

I hear the owner sneak by the door, around 7:45am, to put our tray of coffee on the adjacent table apple tv plus herunterladen. At 8:15 we finally get up and go outside to retrieve it. An insulated pitcher and two mugs. We drink almost finish it off before finally making our way to the main house for breakfast. Waffles and load of fresh fruit for me. Sweet strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and peaches. Orange juice and bacon. An amazing vegan breakfast for Jessica whipped up special just for her moorchicken to download for free. A single layer of lettuce topped with thick slices of ripe red tomatoes. Torn leaves of basil and three massive scoops of mashed avocado. Flat bread on the side. I chose porely. I had breakfast. She had a gourmet meal. Some more lounging, this time in the porch swing before we head west.

Our return loop is through the hill country rather than taking the route most travelled missed broadcast. It may be longer and have more hills, but it gives us the chance to ride along the river for the first hour or two. A shade filled lane and slowly drifting water. We turn off the smooth river road and enter the land of chip seal and repaved but not restriped blacktop. Some sun ripened peaches, two for two dollars, as we turn onto Purgatory adobe indesign cs6. Super sweet and deliciouse. Lunch and a nearly gallon of iced tea in Wimberley. 82 miles and a day of head winds and hills later, we pull into Austin. 3 hours there and 5 hours back. That is called taking the scenic route!
