Heat. Sun. Hot dry wind. Shade. Snakes. Knee. Pedaling. Stay upright. The sun baked my skin as I darted between patches of shade. Twenty minutes earlier meant more sunshine. Hotter temperatures clearer air. I watched every wiggly black tar stripe for signs of life. The 3-4 foot black headed rattle snake on Monday startled Cathy Joan and I on Monday. The heat lulled my senses and on windy tunnel there was a skinny small striped snake in a bush over hanging the road. Very few people on the road. Downhill felt oh so good.

Beware of the German Shepherds!

Tammy reports:

On my morning ride today 2 german shepherds came out from a yard and chased and bit me.  It was right at start of the ride at Sierra Madre and GMR.  If other riders see the shepherds they should be aware that they are chasing cyclists.  I’ve reported it to animal control and they said they will talk to the owners and may quarantine the dogs, but just in case they are out… hope that is helpful.
