    106 Today, But Hey! Somebody Has To Ride!

    It was only 97 so not so bad. But it's suppose to get up to 106 today. I could feel the heat coming as I did my usual rt that heads up to Devore (well known big fire area). It was dry but I want my miles!

    40 miles and 5 large bottles of water later, I'm home!


    Long and dry

    Pffft! Wish I could do 25!

    It's like desert up here!

    Hey, I'm starting to sweat. And Gina gets upset cause I won't give up my favorite training gloves. I doubt I'll find another set with ventilation like this!

    OK, 20 miles from home, & out of water. Time for the Great Pumpkin to head back home!

    That is above my cutoff temperature. I packed it in when things went above 105 up here.

    I could tell that my glutes and legs were a little fatigued. I figured from the heat but come to find out, the last mile of the climb I did yesterday is 13% according to another poster that looked it up. I guess that would explain it.

    Yesterday's final climb, remind me to do it at the beginning next time, not the end of the ride!

    Now that I have it trapped under my fur, it can't escape.
