A Ride of Detours

A nice day to do some outdoor social distancing and I'd planned a ride of 31 miles on a new route to Chappell Hill. A nice route that included some new gravel, a road that no longer existed, bridge construction, and a  repaving project. After two major re-routes we had a good ride of 42 miles. Next time I'll double check the county's website to see all the current road construction projects.

Bluebonnets and cows - the signs of spring. The cows kept their social distance from me. This was along a very nice stretch of gravel on Meyersville Road.

Our final route - note the exploration after mile 15 - looking for a re-route through a rural subdivision without any success. We backtracked to FM 1155 to reach Chappell Hill. Our second re-route was lust before mile 25 where a bridge was out for replacement.

Our favorites - gravel roads and spring wildflowers.

Yep, the bridge was out on Chadwick Hogan Road (Washington County Road 87).

Parting shot.
