This past weekend was the BP MS150 2 day bike ride from Houston to Austin. From Houston to La Grange (the half way point), we had HORRIBLE weather on Friday. It was so bad that the campgrounds got flooded to the point that they were not usable. For the first time in MS150 history (as far as I have been told), Day 1 of the ride was cancelled. I was very fortunate to be on a team (National Oilwell Varco) that was quick to pull things together and find transportation to get us to La Grange to complete the Day 2 ride. At 5 am on Sunday, our bus rolled out of Houston to La Grange. Day 2 ride was incredible. I took the 'challege' route, and I am so happy that I did so. Although it was VERY VERY VERY challenging, and at some points I wanted to walk my bike uphill- which I did NOT), I had the greatest time. Here are some pictures of the ride:
