Ride into Bracketville, TX. Tons of windmills in the distance.

Oso and our new biker friend Chris. We met him while he was on a Sunday afternoon joyride just outside of Brackettville. Taylor hadn't seen a soul in 40 miles and thus decided to stop for water across the road from Chris and his bike. The two got to talking and before you know it we exchanged emails!

  1. Glad to see you stopped at Stonehenge. Admittedly those hills are tough, but the scenery should more than make up for it. As the song goes, “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.”
