Sunday Geocaching at Brackenridge Park Via Bicycle

This Sunday I got up early and put my bicycle on the car rack and headed over to Rick's (flyfisher) house to pick him and his bike up. We were up before the sun was up to beat the heat and work on getting some of the Hike/Bike Brakenridge Park geocache series. (Geocaching is a GPS treasure hunting game.)

We attempted 23 caches on the list of 50 I created the day before. We didn't continue past 23 because the heat was getting to us. We found 13 of the geocaches.

This was the second time that FlyFisher and I rode our bicycle to geocaches. Riding bicycle is a great way to zip to cache to cache. For those that haven't geocached via bicycle ride are often short but compaired to hiking it really helps get the cacher to a hides faster.

Here are some photos of the adventure at Brackenridge park in San Antonio, Texas. I encourage all my readers to try geocaching and to try it via bicycle!

USS Lexington and Bikes

This week my wife and I wanted a change of scenery to ride our bicycles at so we headed to Corpus Christi, Texas. While there the local newspaper had a front page article about how the city is aiming to be more bicycle friendly! What timing!

A look at the Sun Cruiser

In the Summer of 2010 my wife and I decided to purchase some comfort bikes... we came home with 3 speed aluminum frame Sun Cruisers from Britton's Bicycle Shop in San Antonio, Texas. Here are some photos of our rides:
