It IS The Heat
This week has been SERIOUSLY hot. I mean, I dig heat, but this shit was unreal. I still got out to ride a few times with varying success. I have also been busy over on the xxcmag.com blog this week, so Soiled Chamois time was/is at a minimum.
1st ride was a ride at MMCC. Did one loop and bagged it. I go a late start (after 11) so things were REALLY freaking hot. Like 90 and climbing by that point. I wasn't real pleased.
Later in the week I planned correctly and got two nice and fast loop done way before the temps climbed up to almost 100 degrees (later that day my car thermometer would read 100 in the shade 101 in the suns. YIKES!).
FINALLY the heat broke a bit yesterday and it was only about 80, but with that came humidity of about 95%. Still, it felt like a fall day in comparison to earlier in the week. I headed out for a gravel loop and had a great ride. Got about 2:20 on the bike and had good legs.
OK, enough, I need to get my ride mapped for today. Hoping to get a long one in. We'll see.
