After about 80 miles with my boss and his wife(in 108 degree temps), this felt pretty good.

@ BoSoxYacht, you're a better man than I am. That's all I can say.

$120 worth of chain for our tandem, not a pleasant purchase, but needed...

The heat isn't that bad, but it takes a year or two to adjust to it.

My boss and his wife didn't complain about the heat either.

Where are you, and what's the average humidity?

@7:30pm it's 92 degrees, and 46% humidity in NW Phoenix.

I have no idea what the average humidity is, but it didn't seem humid today( just pretty warm).

Cool. lmao

I sound tough now, but when it gets below 60 degrees I'll sound like a little split-tail.

What was your average speed for the 80-mile ride? Just curious. It was 100F here (SoCal) today, and I only did 25 in this heat, which to me seems awful. The forecast says 10 degrees cooler next week, can't wait.

Fast! BoSoxYacht is a beast! Everytime we ride together he drops me all day long, luckily he's nice enough to wait.

I rode tonight, the weather was fantastic and the wind was very favorable if you were heading south. Although it's sad when you average over 27mph on a segment and still can't get the kom - must punish legs more!

Just bought a small cheap bike bell. So much fun too.

Jagwire cables and housing. Finally got around to replacing the cabling on my 1988 Schwinn Caliente.

Today was a pretty slow ride(17.9mph) because my boss was having a rough day. He's been taking some antibiotics, so I guess I shouldn't rip on him at work tomorrow. Today would have been a great day to use the Bicycle Bungee.

Getting geared up for fall/winter. All I'm missing now is probably a nice neck warmer and a hat.
