Cruising North Las Vegas today.

Took a real nice ride today!

Looks like a good starting point!

Floyd Lamb Park.

Some Floyd Lamb residents.

Roosting!

A mans gotta eat?

Getting ready to hit the road.

I'm going to find me a damn dinosaur one day.



No dinosaurs.

Aliens?

The view on the ride home.

Very nice. I've always wondered what you guys do there once it gets hot again. Do you just, like, ride at 2 AM or something? Or, is summer there like winter in Minnesota and nobody really rides? Always curious about this. Must be fairly potentially dangerous to ride even 40 miles when it is 110 degrees.

Used to run marathons when I lived in the South. Very hot and very humid, of course (had to be cautious about when you went out), but a complete joke compared to what you all have goin' on in July temp-wise. How do you keep it going?

I myself, ride before the sun comes up. It's still in the upper 90's but there's no sun pounding down on you. You'd be surprised how many hard core riders still ride in the daytime.

They should do what they do in the UAE:


Desert trail ride near Abu Dhabi

Desert track in the UAE
These paved riding tracks vary in length but this one was approx. 30 km. It is lit by solar power. Dubai has a series of such tracks an was planning to interconnect them which would result in 800 km. of riding track.

I still do, sunny and 75 today. The days of starting out while the sun is still below Mt Lemmon are not far off.
