Got 35 miles in. Looked like we might get some rain this morning. It stayed north. I benefited from some cloud cover to start the ride. On the way back the sun came out and the wind was in my face. Joy.
Still, a pretty nice ride. I’m definitely ready for fall, though. Weird as it sounds, I’m not a big fan of riding in the summer. Too damn hot here. You really have to get up early to get in a good amount of miles before it’s just impossible to have a good time. I like to ride long on weekends, but I also like to sleep in.
I’d take a snowless winter day over the middle of August most of the time. A lot more acceptable to ride fully bundled up than it is nearly naked.
