    I was on the MTB at 0430 when it was only 80 degrees. Now it's 111.

    Did an easy trail ride with friends, then rode home over the mountain.



    Got a big surprise bombing around a corner on a steep dirt road: a 4' deep ditch, and a giant excavator on the other side taking up the whole road.

    That's all I had last night because I just needed it to get home - all the trail riding was in daylight and I only had to light up for the last mile, which was dirt roads. For real night rides, I use a good GloWorm Alpha on my helmet, and a cheap no-name (okay, its a SolarStorm) light on the handlebars.

    After 2000+ miles I'm REALLY enjoying the Bishop. I could bore you with superlatives but suffice it to say its ride quality, fit, finish and those amazing wheels push me to dig deeper and harder than I ever have. At a few months shy of 60, I'm doing WAY more miles (thanks to retirement), I'm enjoying cycling more and I'm more "cycling fit" and faster than I've been in the last 35 years. This was SO worth it.

    Did a nice 94 km ride up and down the Niagara Escarpment yesterday.

    Longest ride I've done in a number of years. Was really enjoyable, little to no traffic and great weather. Only thing I wish was I had an extra 20 minutes so I could have cracked 100km.

    Had to do some travel for work up to Maine, so obviously took a day off and rode in NH on the way up and a short spin in Maine also. Rained most of the day in NH, actually did the Raid Rockingham route, pretty nice! I had my fat tire bike, but that ride is definitely doable on a regular road bike.

    Swapped from coil to air springs out back for a little extra summertime pop. Playing with spring curves is fun.

    Quick evening ride after work. We've had some great weather the past couple of days with a nice break from the humidity. Love this time of year when all of the summer vegetables start coming in.

    Forced three-plus and two coffee stops in between first light and southerly rain this am. The other hemisphere.

    Quick greenway cruise before packing to leave to go racing Friday accidentally turned into a leisurely 60 mile round trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. 1x gear still sucks real bad for paved downhills.

    The sun can be a punisher in Spain: 7 km climb with a friend and had to stop after 7 pm to collect myself in the shade.

    55 miles, warm day. Going up Gower Road in Glenville all of a sudden I realized there were no leaves. That whole hill is infested with gypsy moth caterpillars. Crossing over to go up the upper half of Washout it actually smelled bad in the woods. This is a snapshot on the other side of the ridge.


    Eaten. Need cuckoos stat.
