Can't believe this isn't already here! It was supposed to be super hot yesterday but I went for a ride anyway and it turned out to be a gorgeous day. It topped out ate about 86 and cooled off a bit to 80 at the coast. Came within 3 inches of getting doored by some doofus in a Coupe that just flung her door wide open without even looking and there was plenty of dingbattery along the coast from all the box jockeys trying to get into the beach parking lots but overall a really pretty day!

Spent last week at Cannon Beach, OR for some R&R. Rode the bike one day a little over seven miles and turned my legs to jelly on the hills.
If you see an old fat guy levitating through town with his legs pumping furiously... well don't worry there is a bicycle underneath me.
