More often than not the ones I get to go on are short distances on either highway or bumpy roads and it is almost always cold. Don’t get me wrong, I always have a great time it’s just not usually your ideal riding conditions especially since my husbands bike doesn’t have a back rest. A bluebonnet ride though, how could that be anything but perfect?
After overcoming the scheduling issue the next obstacle was the weather. Spring in Texas is a beautiful yet unpredictable season. Despite conflicting weather predictions all week this day turned out to be perfect. The morning was cold , bitter cold, but within a few hours it warmed up to the perfect temperature. The sun was shinning but not scorching hot, there was a light breeze but not so much wind that it made riding uncomfortable what more could I ask for.
On most rides I hang on for my life but this ride was a lot of back roads, just taking it easy and going slow. I was actually able to take pictures from the back of the bike which was something a few months ago I never would have imagined myself doing. The bluebonnets were blooming and animals were everywhere basking in the sun. You can read more about the ride and watch a video here. Most of the pictures he has up are the ones taken by me from the back seat.
