Had a great ride this afternoon, weather is nice, mostly sunny, a bit humid and a slight south breeze. Only thing is it is hot; typical following a hurricane landfall here. It was 91*F when I started from the house, had a full ice/water bottle and was well hydrated to start, that was not a problem. I looked at the temperature on the bike computer when I got in the soybean fields and it was 100*F to 102*F when I was riding through them both directions and they are just tall enough to shield the wind off of you. It got really hot riding along these fields. Distance wasn't the problem the heat felt oppressive at times. I took plenty of water well ahead of time as I rode so I don't cause problems with the Renal Failure. No problems there.
Saw a hawk sitting on a mail box, wish I had my camera, she watched me ride up and gave me the ol' hawk eye then flew off fussing the whole time. Guess I interrupted her supper hunting for mice or rabbits in the fields. Wish y'all had ben with me. Ride safe.
