Day 8 Lake Brownwood to Breckenridge TX 77 Miles
The rest day was great but I still have a few sore spots. Some areas we will not mention.
We will start north out of Lake Brownwood on highway 279. This looks like a small county highway with very little traffic. We will ride to the town of Cross Plains which will be a good distance for our first rest stop. Another good reason is that Cross Plains is the first town on this route and it is 32 miles from Lake Brownwood.
We will take highway 206 northeast out of Cross Plains to Cisco which is 23 miles further. I know we will be able to get refreshments here since highway 206 intersects with Interstate Highway 20.
When we leave Cisco we will take US highway 183 for 28 miles where will arrive in Breckenridge. It is really nice how Texas spaced the town out just right for a great bike ride. I will need to send the governor a thankyou card.
Today’s training ride started late since I actually put in a little work time for the company I used to work for. That was interesting change of events. I didn’t get on the road until after lunch. It turns out I didn’t eat enough at lunch even though Kye tried to get me to eat more. I somethings I can be a little stubborn. I know you can’t believe that. Not only did I eat a light lunch I rode 68 miles before stopping to eat again a that was back at my house. Kye had a snack ready for me so I could recuperate. Then I finished the rest of the ride.
