On the final day of the Rapha Turkey Takeoff Challenge on Strava I was greeted with temps in the thirties and the wind blowing over twenty miles per hour. With those winds Ben and I decided we would do a leisurely tour around Dallas and enjoy the ride rather than heading out to the country and just banging out the miles. It turned out to be a great call.
We rolled down the Santa Fe Trail and cut through a very quiet down town, enjoying the wide open streets cutting through the high-rises. The Christmas decorations were already up and the tourists were out by the Dealey Plaza. Still, we both laughed at how amazing it was that in a city of 6 million people downtown felt deserted on a cold Sunday morning.
Other early highlights of the ride were rolling through the Bishop Arts District and the Katy Trail. The Bishop Arts District has such a cool vibe, every time I’m over there I promise myself I will go more often. The Katy Trail was bustling with runners and walkers.
