    I seldom ride on weekends; too many normal people out there.

    I didn't have time to ride. I did registration for a club ride and then worked the food stop all day. The bike never left the rack

    107 degrees here in the Great Valley....but once our dry heat goes over 100, it doesn't seem to make a difference out on the roads except my energy drink gets even more like warm piss. When I went in for a flu shot last fall, the nurse noticed my tan and asked if I was a farmer. Sweet soul.

    The aging cyclist may not get faster-- but he does get slower at slowing down.

    102 degrees, no sleep, and baby-sitting a new puppy. Wanted to get out before it warmed up, but the puppy decided I didn't need any sleep, so had to stay home. Couldn't even ride the stationary!

    One of the first really spectacular weather weekends of the year in Seattle. Snow-capped mountains in every direction - lots of cyclists out and around.

    33 miles Saturday - I rode to a bike shop to look at commuting bikes.

    39 miles Sunday - was home by 9:45 a.m. because I was "needed" for something else after that.

    Did the Yakima River Canyon ride, 38 miles. The canyon road is closed once a year to traffic; it's bikes only. This is a fund raiser for Crime Stoppers. I think it would be a neat idea to let cars use the canyon road only one day a year, and bikes all the other days, but it's a hard sell.

    No. I rode 203 miles on Saturday (Davis Double Century), so I rested on Sunday!
