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

I left my house this morning at 6:15 a.m.
The buildings in the background are downtown San Diego.

After a few loops around the Island, the sun began to rise.

To get from Shelter Island to Harbor Island, I have to pass the airport.

It does look bad there. I bet it got all the way down into the 60s and if you looked up you might have been able to find a cloud (just one though).
