This last weekend I flew from my home in Dallas, Tx to East Lansing Michigan to visit my fiancee over the Labor Day weekend. After dealing with the summer with high's in the mid to upper 90's and getting up at 7am on the weekends to get in rides before the temps reached those melting points - 4 days of highs in the 70's made me very jealous. If I hadn't been with my girlfriend for the first time in three months I would have been scanning every phone book in each for a bike shop that offers rentals. Though I must admit, some of the roads we covered were in a bit bad shape for my requirements of roads that I would travel on.
All said and done it was a beautiful weekend (made even more so since I was with my beautiful girlfriend of course) and I now wish to have two homes. One in the north to enjoy high's in the 70's and 80's through the summer, and another far south, say Mexico - for the winters.
