Enjoying the Heat !

I've always enjoyed playing in the hot weather even when I was a light weight racing at 140 lbs. many moons ago. Finally we are seeing the warm humid weather moving in and for me that means more time riding my bikes. So after service today it was a visit to my old neighborhood and visit a fun trail that always beats me up a little. Hoping these temps stay for a long while, as it helps this diesel motor get going faster.

I enjoy riding in the heat, too. The key is hydrate, hydrate, hydrate -- and sometimes take it easy. Here's the next few days here - - -

I was 160 pounds at 16 years old, skin and bones, 5'11 back then.

BTW, thanks for the gifts G! We enjoy looking at them day in an and day out. Brings a little sunshine to our day!

To the rest of the viewers, Zipp is a really cool guy!
Racing at 140 lbs. was tough because there were tons of guys at the 110-120 lbs. range. Been living the life of a Clydesdale for around 10 years now. Glad you like the figurines.
