We may have also crossed some lovely semi frozen streams.https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...5bc36f3e34.jpg

Meanwhile, in Philadelphia the heat index is nearly 90 and itís not even 6:15.

Forecast is looking rainy most of the week; if it holds and falls in the morning, no podium for me.

Going to be a low mileage week for me, looks like rain all day Wednesday and Thursday and We have the girls this weekend.

Took today off for some reason, wish I hadnít.

gnome I had no idea that you had that type of landscape available to you. Beautiful!

BillyD 07-20-20 05:31 AM

Just looked at my weather app, and in Phoenix at 4:30 in the morning itís 91 degrees. OUCH!

BillyD 07-20-20 05:32 AM

Probably not a hint of sun to be found.

This mornings heat was sickening. On my ride I found my daughter one of those classic red cars she can be pushed in. Itís in perfect condition, also found her a mini trampoline.
Oh and I completed my goal of 500 miles for the month. Over all success. Now back to work.

Im gunna place this here.

seedsbelize 07-20-20 05:58 AM

I await the decision as to whether we are orange or red. I can ride in orange; not so in red. My guess is the outlying areas where I ride will be more conservative. Vamos a ver

seedsbelize 07-20-20 05:59 AM

Bizarre?

daily mail doesnít believe in spell check or checking their sources. They are very consistent in that regard.

Also, I'm in charge of laundry. So, if I run out it's my own fault.

Wear cargo shorts and tighty-whiteys like the rest of us.

Back in the 80s there was a guy who used to ride a popular route around the river with a cockatoo on his shoulder. A big one.

Trsnrtr 07-20-20 07:33 AM

There’s a pro, can’t remember who, has posted several pics riding with a parrot on his shoulder.

edit: googled it and it was Michele Scarponi.

Like some kind of Johnny Lunchpail?

I do. I really only have 2 sets that I like to wear and an additional two that I'll willingly wear. Then a couple "break in case of emergency" that are better suited to the trainer.

My taint chafed just reading that.


A light spin might have helped this morning, but I'm good with having taken the day off, too. The legs are more sore than I thought they'd be - riding solo the vast majority of the year, I've been targeting threshold, but yesterday involved some good ol' town sign sprints, a couple of them a little longer than ideal. I did set a new peak output mark for the year, though. :bday:

Aaaah refreshingly cool images for us northern hemisphere folks just when we need it most. Kudos.

Today’s ride was 1594kJ. Should be able to top 6MJ before the weekend. Of course, I have no context for what that means.
