All Day Ride...

The weather was mid-80's today. It was a welcome break from the blast furnace heat of the past few weeks. By the time I got up in to the mountains it cooled down so much I had to put on my jacket & gloves.

How hot is too hot?

Went for an errand ride around town yesterday. The temp topped 100+. It was one of the rare rides where it was actually hotter riding down the road than it was sitting at a light. You hope in the back of your mind that if you go faster the air will cool down just a little bit. But that was not the case.

If you want to experience it for yourself then go outside on the hottest day and then have someone blow hot air on your face with a hair dryer. Also you need to get a pair of ovens on high with the doors open on each side.

Then you might get close to the heat that was going on.

Finally Went for a Ride

It had been a while since I went for a ride since the Deal's Gap trip.

Honestly, after 1600+ miles I really didn't want to go on an all day run. But the weather cooled off just enough and I headed to the mountains today.

Up on Skyline the air was crisp and cool enough to need a jacket.

It was a great day for a ride.
