Today was a great example of one of the intangible benefits of bicycle commuting. My son has a golf tournament this morning across town. She was going to drop him off and then run some other errands,...

Over lunch today I met a group of old co-workers. The restaurant where we were meeting was only about a half mile away, so I didn't bother changing out of my work clothes.

Thankfully we only get maybe a combined 15-20 days like this throughout the summer. Our more typical summer day is mid-80s with a bit more reasonable humidity level.

Ran some errands via bike over lunch. Temp is up into the low 90s. Glad I swapped out my work shirt for a moisture wicking one, as I got drenched with sweat.

Went down to the courthouse to renew...
