Today's ride was rich with many threads and vignettes of stories. The first most important was the heat. Bill and I started out at 7 am in the morning to ride before the heat turned us back. Pretty easy to set goals of new distances in the nicely hydrated state of the air-conditioned house. Quite another to sizzle and swelter all the way up the road. As soon as I turned into the Sun after Newmann's, my ear alerted me to the fact I hadn't gotten sunscreen on all the necessary tender pink parts.

As I stood at the shed, several riders zoomed by asking for water at the shed. No water at the shed. Bring your bottles, and extras filled with ice chilled water. Doug. Jokster. JT Dave on Recumbant.
