Hey, we suddenly got summer heat today! I didn't hear a single complaint, even from the folks in the office where the a/c is on the fritz. We've been waiting a long time to see weather reports like this: 80's, 90's, for as far as the forecasts can see...YES!
Took the bike to work today...pounded on the pedals into a pretty stiff headwind in the morning. I kept thinking I'd find some magic gear that would lift my speed up into the 20's, but that was wishful cycling.
My colleague Ron said that he notices when it's hot here, we get a pretty good northerly wind coming down through the valley. His theory certainly held true this afternoon when I headed back for home. The wind had picked up considerably and I was moving in the right direction to take full advantage of a gnarly tailwind. 28 mph sustained on flat road! On that stretch of pavement, I felt like Crush from Finding Nemo, catching the EAC.
Most Excellent, Dude!
