I know I haven't blogged in awhile because I, that is to say ...oh well, I'd admit it, I procrastinated. I suppose that is better than prevaricating or expectorating. One of the more enjoyable rides in the region - Conquer the Coast in Corpus Christi - is coming up in a few weeks and I'm looking forward to pedaling the 65 miles around the bay again. Fellow Advocate staffers Leslie Wilber and Bob Zavala joined me last year and I hope they and a few other Victoria folks make it this year. Seeing the rising sun after pedaling to the top of the Harbor Bay bridge and later, seeing dolphins whiel riding the ferry to Mustang Island are a few of the sights that make this a memorable ride. Conquer the Coast offers two rides - 25 miles and 65 miles. Registration is $30 before Sept. 15 and $50 after. Come join me on Saturday, Sept. 26. You'll get fit and have fun at the same time. Eric
