By car, Texas is a long 850 mile drive or 4 ½ million feet on a bicycle. Frank called in at 2:18pm Arizona time, “man it’s really flat out here” he said with the wind howling over his Alltel cell phone (thanks again Terri!). He was pedaling from Houston and was now just 32 miles from the Texas/Louisiana border. That’s right, LOUISIANA, even Texas had to come to an end somewhere. For Frank Texas ends after 16 days of incredible memories and meeting lots of great new friends.
The route - sounds complicated From Houston, Frank began on I-10 “that was crazy” according to Frank. Eventually he made it to US90 then north onto SR-326 and eventually to SR105 around Beaumont to Vidor near Intersate 12 and hopefully to the Louisiana border by dark. Sounds complicated.
