Simon took on the photography duties. As you can see they made it to the "Smilin' V" 14 mile turn around. Claire will be in a mini-triathlon down in New Braunfels tomorrow morning and considered this mere 28 mile round trip a warmup for the early hour. Maybe that explains Claire riding two bicycles simultaneously. She and Simon will have to rise early to get down there on time! [Ed: Reports are Simon slept in...]
Simon showed off his GPS prowess in conjunction with Google Earth. Here is an elevation profile for their travel. Of course it is symmetric with the "Smilin' V" at the peak for an overall 77 meter rise from the start back at the high school.
And in keeping with Simon's Texas tradition he "caught" this Texas Rat Snake crossing their path. I have yet to get the story on that critter.
