This is the last full week for the month of March and I’ll post the monthly totals in a few days. This weeks totals were boosted by the Share the Road cycling event that went through McAllen, after work on Tuesday. It was a 20 mile ride at a nice slow pace so that everyone could keep up as it was really blowing that day. Surprisingly, I didn’t feel the wind affect me all that much. My ride ended up being 26 miles as I had to ride to and from the starting point. Sundays ride was also a good one. Finally, less wind and more heat! Really got to sweat and get drenched. Passing those sprinklers, watering the lawns, was a cooling experience even though I never got wet.
Well, here are the weekly totals:
Harlingen and it's surrounding areas provide plenty of rural roads to go out and explore.
