Trevor H’s first metric of the year…
“I went out for my first metric of the Cup o’ Dirt Challenge last Friday. Earlier in the week, I let me friend Matt know of the plan and he was up for a long Good Friday Ride.
The ride was a mix of wind, wind, and more wind. We started the ride heading out and behind the Corpus Christi Botanical gardens. There is a “hidden” dirt section there that opens up the dirt road possibilities, so we were happy to take it and add a couple miles. Due to the recent rains, we had to reroute into a plowed field with a small jeep road. Next thing I know, Matt is flying in the air next to me and his front wheel is fork deep in the mud. After a few minutes of cleaning mud, we were back on the dirt and heading out to the wide open road.
I had a route in mind, but every chance I had to reroute and try a new road, I would.
This is the best time of year to ride in Texas with all the wildflowers and cooler temperatures (it only reached 89 on the ride). It was a great ride and I am glad I signed up for this challenge.”
