Pedaling for principles: Houston cyclists choose to not ride on Sunday
So, what were these men thinking about as they neared the finish line? Was it the feeling of satisfaction of having reached a goal? Was it the anticipation of finally being able to stop pedaling? All of that as well as something different was on Rackleff’s mind.
“The last 30 miles all I could think about was getting Mexican food,” he confessed. “I really had a craving for one of those tubular tacos.”
But the most difficult part of the experience wasn’t necessarily the rough road patches, the sore muscles, the food cravings, or even those last 60 miles. For the men, it was the irony of getting up early Sunday morning for church after returning to Houston at 2:30 a.m.
Which goes to prove that sometimes there is no rest for the weary.
