Hot, muggy, rolling...

The weather forecast for today was pretty grim from a comfort standpoint, with temperatures predicted to be in the mid-90s with high humidity too. I decided to ride before work today as opposed to riding to work and back again. My thinking was that I could then skip riding in the late afternoon heat.

That didn't work! I rode in the morning, then used my 4-wheeled (and air-conditioned) vehicle to get to the office. Back home again in the late afternoon, I felt my bike calling me. And yes, I did ride again. It was 95 degrees out when I rolled away from home. Although it was hotter than yesterday, the temperature actually felt (slightly) more pleasant. I suspect that was due to sticking to nicely shaded roads for my early evening ride. My mileage total for the day was 36, just 4 miles short of my usual ride to work and back again. Not bad, especially considering the gift of heat that the weather wizard insisted on providing.

Amazing light emerging from behind the clouds...
