No hot weather in NY this summer

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

my theory, we're going to have an awesome September / October. I am pleased though with the weather in NY, provided that it does not rain.

Well we certainly deserve it after that terribly soggy June. I was walking to work this morning and I couldn't believe it was mid-July, it was so cool it felt like May. That should make for an extremely pleasant afternoon ride today. Beautiful

I'm a little nervous. I'm used to suffering through a few transitional days at the beginning of the summer and the beginning of the winter when the temperature is near it's season high (and low) for a few days. This allows my body and expectations to change. If it goes from the low 70s to 90s one day, it's going to hurt.

Are you suggesting just because there are natural events that affect our climate we should ignore the fact we contribute to it unnecessarily? Unlike natural events we can change our habits.
