The heat subsides

The heat broke, no more triple digit temperatures, it’s now back to our normal range in the 80’s.

I’ve been off the bike for the last 3 weeks, between the high temps and my workload, it’s not been easy to get out.

Just did 1 lap around the McAlpine Greenway today, getting the legs reacquainted to pedaling and the body acclimated to the heat of summer.

The main trail is nicely packed now, the city’s construction vehicles have smoothed out the washboard effect, too bad, I kind of liked the hand massage.

distance 8.50 miles, average speed 12.7 mph.
