Yard maintenance all day yesterday so no ride but today I need that endorphin rush and my legs are fresh. Hot and muggy but that is normal so I will just deal with it. Sweat cleanses me and makes me feel better. I good coat of sunblock for all the bugs to stick to and Ritz crackers that won’t melt and a hydration pack with cold water and I’m good to go.
