Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

While driving up and down the length of CA for my kid's sport, at a gas station convenience store in the Harris Ranch area, I picked up a jar of Harris Ranch Roasting & Grilling Seasoning, just out of curiosity. It immediately became my favorite seasoning mix for steaks, and other grilled meats. I'm currently on my second jar.

Today’s assignment was cleaning and refilling all the water bowls for the birds. Lots of birds. Lots of bowls. But I had nice company.

A high of 102 today, and we’ve already passed it. I will spend no time in an air conditioned room.

High of 70 today, sunny. very slight onshore breeze, about 65% humidity. Should be like this for the next several months, before we reach our peak heat which may top out in the high 80's. It's rough out here .

Friend has planned a birthday ride for his 60th this coming Saturday. I like the roads he has chosen but there are some steep-ish sections. This is the kind of ride I've always jumped at but this time I'm....concerned. I've been using a 34x29 low gear for everything (except the Eastern Sierra) for 12 years. I'm getting to the point of wanting lower a gear for the rides with steeper stuff late in the ride. I have a granny gear on the Gunnar and I could take that bike. Took it out today and did a little climbing with it. Meh.

OMG, a bar is opening in Scottsdale with 4 curling ice sheets in it. I might have to get out there to check it out before all the Canadien snowbirds come back in the winter.

Ooh they got duckpin bowling too.

Mostly hosers from BC/AB/SK but we do get the occasional Quebecois snowbirder who hates that Fla. humidity.

Especially Scottsdale. Working in Peoria I saw a few Canadiens but out in North Scottsdale, Halloween to the end of Spring Training it almost feels like you're actually in Canada.

I don’t know the preferred spelling but when we are in Green Valley we ride with many.

In Cancun they go as far as putting US$ in the atm s. And Cancun is on Eastern time while the rest of the country is on Mountain time(except the border states)[Central time with no dst]. They would rather the rest of the country is confused than the tourists. Tourists confuse easily. Just ask trainsnorter.

7:07 pace today for my weekly 15' jog. Almost skipped it too since we were butting up on dinner prep time, and I was feeling lazy and unmotivated. But I felt peppy like right away, negative split the whole time too, well under 7' pace by the end. One of these weeks I'll find a track, do a warmup mile and then just pin it. No freaking clue what I'd do on my 15' weekly jog training. Sub 6' for sure. But how close to 5'?
