    The heat...

    A mechanic of PCad's vintage at my LBS told me that his old coach used to advise against rides in temperatures above one's own body temperature. I thought that sounded like pretty sage advice, and like a good excuse for skipping the KILLER thursday ride on nights like tonight. Temperature = 101.

    So 7:30 rolls around, and here come 2 guys who are regulars on that ride, cooling down. Holy sh*t! I thought the ride just evaporated on days like this. I foolishly assumed that no one would participate in a 2 hour, 50 mile, Bataan Death March of Cycling, in that kind of sweltering heat, but I forgot just how insane my UCSF brethren are.

    The competition never rests.

    I am feeble and weak-willed.

    They are not.

    I hate the heat. It's finally cooled down here in Virginia. Last night I actually got to wear a long sleeve shirt. Ahhhhhh it was nice.

    It's nice. Heat, cold and rain leave the roads and MUP open. I'm good until maybe 104 or so but am more heat tolerant than most. Wouldn't want to be responsible for a group or team ride that hot.

    My tires seem to become butter though. Lost two cheap tires this week. Sliced up like an emo kid.
