If it's not obvious, I spent over 5 hours of my Saturday on a Team McAllen group ride. That's 5 hours I wasn't with my family.
And it wasn't that great of a ride. I visited some new places, such as the backroads of Penitas and Havana, and rode up Jarachinas Road, which is one of my favorites, and was joined by some great company, but that was stacked up against riding at an atypically slow pace for a Saturday, stopping for a team photo, stopping to wait for a few riders, and riding through north McAllen and catching every light and stop sign we could find.
I'll need to be smarter about riding until the family is together in Austin.
