    Me too but I'm at work. Plus, I can't handle riding in this summer heat (95+).

    I had a great time riding today in eastern MA. It's 95, but the humidity is way down from a few days ago, so it's much more comfortable.

    I've found the more I bike in hot weather (most of this summer!), the more my tolerance for the heat goes up. It used to be that I thought 80 was sweltering; now I'm saying that 95 is comfortable

    I couldn't do it last week, though. Tried to ride when it was 101 and really humid. I only made it 4 miles and drank half my water bottle!

    I've just been out riding. Another 1,000 metre climb. My addiction is satiated for another day.

    Went for a 30 mile spin this afternoon. 24C, little wind, perfect riding IMHO. Can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

    Taking it easy after a 99.7 km morning ride with a couple of buddies, when the average was @ 30 km/h...
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    I'm taking it easy as well. Went out this morning on my usual Sunday morning ride of 70Km.

    I was grounded today(by me) it seems I have been neglecting my househlod duties. Don't you think a bicycle powered vacuum cleaner would be a good thing? Tomorrow though bright and early off to visit mom and dad in Seattle. ( they seem to be the only ones proud of this 46 year old commuter)

    I took my bike in for a tune-up Thursday and I'm not getting my Trek back until Wednesday. Aaurgh! So in the 1-2 hours I spend every day on my bike, instead I'm sleeping in, reading the paper, watching television ... and essentially going stir-crazy in the meantime.

    I never thought it would be like this, but in the past three days I haven't slept well, I've been super-edgy and the lack of exercise has affected me.

    So what do I do until Wednesday, as far as that release? And as far as maintenance, should I learn how to tune up my own bike, or leave it to the pros and face a week's worth of serious withdrawl?

    I think if I had to go a week without my bike I would have to do some hiking.I usually roadride and a nice hike through the forrest is a nice change of pace.

    Hillyman before last week I'd have said no, but then I took my wife and kids on a 4.5 hour walk through the forests to see some waterfalls. and it was wonderful.

    I don't just mean the waterfalls, it was everything, as you said the change of pace was refreshing the views were excellent and yes the waterfalls were wet .

    It's something I going to do more often.
