Biking, Biking, and more Biking!

Despite the fact that it rained 1 1/2 of our 4 days away...
we still managed to ride on 4 trails!
Overall, I believe we conquered 25 miles!
It was a great time! By the last day our legs were Jello!

We stopped in Gruene, TX on our way home and had lunch at a
great restaurant...The Gristmill

Our Weekend in Austin!

Last week Friday we left with another couple to head to Austin, TX!
We planned on doing some mountain biking and taking some time to relax!
Unfortunatly our first day and a half it rained....
but we preoccupied ourselves with some shopping, food, and bike shops!
