I've been trying to do all my riding in the mornings these past few months before the heat gets ridiculous. Looks like this summer hasn't been the best for glorious afternoon rides. But hey, any day on the bike is better than a day not on the bike. Or something. Anyways, on to Andrea's update and photos.
The heat nearly killed me this month, as I expected it would. I dreaded July more than January, and I was not disappointed. Got in a Full on 7/12/12, and a Metric on 7/15/12. Nothing too interesting to report besides feeling like a chinchilla, taking dust bath after dust bath (screw you, Schwans man, passing me like, 40 times). Came across two free range goats in Echo Valley state park, and a sign that made me very philosophical (at least during my near-heatstroke and hyponatremia): all pavement eventually does end, doesn't it? And that's where things start to get awesome.
Everyone stay safe out there in the heat! Here's to hoping that August is ridiculously cold, or at least that Kwik Star continues to let me fill my CamelBak with ice for free.
