Day 25The Alamo

Today the ride began about 26 miles outside San Antonio. Travis joined us today from California and he will be here through Friday. We still had a cross wind but we did have decent roads for most of the day. It was nice to experience downtown San Antonio on a bike. We got to see the Riverwalk and the Alamo. The lunch stop for today was back at the bus. We had our usual fruit and Ryno Power "Carb-Fuel" shakes for lunch. Thanks Ryno for supporting us. The second part of our day was supposed to be spent on I-10 but I guess the truckers in San Antonia don't like cyclist. They gave us a lot of uncalled for honks. So after our wonderful Chase Chicks had taken all they could we made a jump back down to Hwy 90. It wasn't as rough as it had been the past few days but it wasn't smooth. We ended up being able to ride 62 miles in just under 5 hrs. This has been a hard week on our bodies and minds. The wind in your face all day everyday slowly wears on the spirit.
