Chip and I rode our tandem bicycle 30 miles in the Tour Dallas ride on Saturday. Our friends, Curtis Wright and Kathy Bell, also rode their bicycles with us on the route, which took us through the historic Swiss Avenue district, Turtle Creek, and around White Rock Lake, among other areas. We enjoyed seeing all the beautiful homes and yards. After the ride we enjoyed an early lunch at the Spaghetti Warehouse in downtown Dallas.
