I concur with you missjean. I love riding in the cooler air. It sure beats arriving at various destinations as a sweat hog.

It was 100 degrees yesterday, and supposed to be 98 today. I haven't felt the chill yet.

Have you ever thought about your optimal riding temp? 60F and cloudy makes me smile

Southern Arizona real estate prices are on the way up but still near historic lows.

It's not too late.

96*F in Cleveland today, so I'm really not feeling the chill just yet - even though the days are getting shorter rather quickly. Forecast highs are for low 60s by the end of the week. Cleveland...

But yes, I do realize that we only have five-six weeks of good cycling weather left before things start getting 'iffy'. And I still haven't gotten my neck issue sorted out (yet another surgery scheduled for Sept 26), nor have I worked on either bike in a month, Dammit!

"Wait 'til next year!" is the Cleveland sports fan's battle cry anyway, so I guess I'll have to settle for virtually no worthy miles ridden this season, and riding the rollers this coming Winter (again)...

Ta signature devrait lire:

"Laisser le bon temps rouler"

Et je suis bien d'accord.

We finally have cooler days in the SF Bay area and it is a pleasure--but the winds are there as well and the fog is not far behind.

For me ideally in the 70s is the best temperature to ride in.

OK now you can correct my english!

Actually I am very wrong and it is very interesting:

I think in "true french" one would use my version!

But again?
