It's all relative, I'm told
And there have been a lot of nice threads here about fall-weather and the riding season tailing off
Here also, the weather's changed. This morning's ride, setting off at 0600 for a couple of hours, then a coffee stop, then a half hour back home, was lovely, and the chatter in the group was all about how pleasant the conditions were.
The fierce heat and the high humidity are over. About 4 weeks ago it was still like pedalling in a sauna.
Then, at about 0830, getting saddled up to leave the coffee shop, someone checked a temperature feature on her bike computer. 37 C - what's that, mid 90s F?
OK, the computer was on a parked bike, in full sun, attached to black handlebars. Even so, it struck me that we can chatter about the pleasantly temperate, when by most normal standards....
Hope you all had good rides too this weekend.
