I took some mental health time today and headed for points east to pick up some points for BMW DFW‘s Individual Challenge Ride. It was a nice, 272 mile loop through east Texas. After breakfast with Heather, I made my way out to Forney to get a picture of the MiG-17 in front of De Ridder Antiques. After leaving there, I ended up in Emory to get a picture of Circle-H BBQ. From there it was a quick hop over to Edgewood to take a picture of the Heritage Park. As it was getting closer to lunch, and I’d decided to stop and eat at the next location, I headed for Edom and the Edom Bakery. Little did I know that there was an arts festival going on, but not to worry, I got a parking spot, some food, and another picture. Back on the road, I stopped in Athens to take a picture at the post office, and then went over to the final stop. Stopping in Eustace, I got a picture of the bike in front of Sue’s Roost restaurant.
My point gathering done, I rode over to Creekview Golf Course to meet up with Heather. She was doing a work related golf tournament, and it was just wrapping up when I pulled in. After hanging out for a little while, we made our way back to the metroplex.
Here’s the ride route over on Spot Adventures.
