Prayers for overcast skies were answered. Skies were clear when I left home at 6 - a full overcast had developed when we started riding at 7:30 and held all day. Temps rose from 70 to 80 as the day progressed, and afternoon southwest winds brought a fresh load of humidity from the gulf.
I finished with 85 miles on the trip odometer. A cooler fall ride with the dewpoint below 60 will make a full century a reality this year. With so many to choose from, which one to pick??
