My original plan was to ride my loaded Thorn Nomad MK2 to Fort Worth. However, I changed my mind after riding to Fort Worth the day before. To reach my campsite from Trinity Bicycles, it was a 20 mile or so ride. It was simply too hot for me to ride 50 miles, in all (30+20). I will attempt these sorta rides when it is cooler.
There were some really cool bicycles there and some cool riders. People was hauling all types of stuff, including kids and dogs.
Here is Bernie checking last minute emails before hitting the road!
Kona Ute. The pannier bags on this bike were quite nice!
ExOfficio shorts on. They both dried in no time. I didn't put on the pannier rain covers until the very last minute. The contents of the panniers were bone dry. YES!
Trangia stove and my Clickstand Sawtooth kit. This nice feller happened by and then it was time to get cooking :) Oh, Hi Michael !
Kryptonite U-Lock. I used a two other cable locks to secure the front and the rear wheels. While some might say it was overkill, I wasn't taking no chances.
