30 years riding, 15 years writing

A scorcher I tell you

All week it’s been in the high 90’s.

Riding this week has been difficult, if you don’t get out early, crack of dawn type of early, you ain’t riding. Though I’ve seen the sunrise a couple of times this week, it’s been from all-night coding sessions.

Today I braved the heat, went out at 10:00am. A pleasant 82 degrees greeted me, came back in, the temp had risen to 87. In a short hour, the ground had gained 5 degrees of heat, it’s a scorcher I tell you.

Tomorrow, crack of dawn, put on my riding shorts, stuff a banana in my jersey, get out the door before I get coding.

distance 8.60 miles, average speed 13.5 mph.
