Hot at the end and a German Shepherd nearly got me today. On a leash and the dirty dog went from off the path to the left almost all the way over to to me on the right so fast. On the brighter side my tires stayed inflated for the entire ride and I'm back to carrying a pump and spare tube plus some new thinner tire levers.

I'm at zero miles for July, and in fact have only ridden 6 times this year (I quit riding in 2010). I can't even ride until the 17th because I'm going out of town in the morning for three days. But...I think I can manage a hundred miles in July still. Stay tuned.

Vertical: 5,248 ft

Slow start to the month due to a back problem that held me back for a week. Had a good ride at the Weatherford Peach Pedal yesterday. Travelling at the end of the month, so I'm setting a smallish goal.
