4th of July Ride – Bailed

Too Hot

I bailed on the 4th of July ride today. I’m not enjoying the organized rides so far. Too much driving for too little in return and today is Soooo HOT!
Temps going up to 98 degrees with a heat index of 115 degrees. They also say it might go higher. 92 degrees when I got up this morning and the picture is the thermometer on our kitchen window @ 1 pm. Thermometer is not in direct sunlight…

Pam and I went out for a drive with Lily today and just spending 15 minutes outside the car walking was oppressive.
No ride today. Thinking I need to get mentally prepared for some basement miles in the coming weeks. This summer is turning out to be way too hot to be enjoyable.
