I would just like to say, that I had the best damn riding conditions in the world today. A temperature range of 13-24 degrees C, I don't believe anyone can top this. As a consequence:


I'm gloating because I don't think it's going to last much longer.

I have to admit, I love summer and warm weather but I was getting a tad sick of the heat. Lately it's been much nicer- temps around 21-24 degrees C. Yesterday it was kind of overcast but there was no wind at all. I like it when it's overcast like that because the sun isn't glaring in my face. It's like spring weather. Only thing is that the sun sets so much earlier now, so you have to leave earlier or cut the ride short, waaaa.

It seems like we have hot weather cold weather, and very short beautiful times in between...

I say there are three months of the year that I really like, the month and a half at the beginning of summer, and the month and a half at the beginning of fall. You can have the rest of the year. It is the one reason I've thought I might like San Deigo, it seems to be the temprate zone I like, not hot all the time, and not cold and snowy, just perpetually nice year round. The SD locs say I'd last three years, as they did, then I'll be wearing sweaters, and coats, closing windows, and turning on the heat.
