My last week of big miles. I start work on Monday and I have to be there at 7 am. I am planning on getting up at 4 am to ride before work.
78°-81° feels like 89° wind 4-6 S
Two quick loops before swimming. More traffic on the road and school starts next week.
ZBar Peanut Butter Cookie is OK.
79°-85° feels like 95° winds 9 SW
Three clockwise loops. Legs felt strong or maybe it was because I pumped up my tires.
ClifBar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut A+
81° humidity 86% wind 5 NW
Some sprinkles. Enough to keep the temperature lower.
First loop and wind changed to 7 W
Another loop and wind was now 3 SW
I had planned to do 4 loops but it was getting late and I was getting hungry for real food.
ClifBar Protein Peanut Butter & Chocolate A++
77°-82° feels like 90° winds 2S-5NW
Two shorter loops before swimming. Pushed it a bit. No stops.
79°-89° feels like 101° winds 2S-8W
Too warm and too windy.
Open house at JLMS meant cars parking in all the wrong spots and in the bike lane. What a mess. Headwind along Mansfield and Beardsley and I had nothing left to push when the wind was helping. A slow ride. I was ready to quit after one loop and my goal was three. I kept going and even hoped for a light rain to cool me down. Instead I got a downpour with 1 1/2 miles left to go.
ClifBar Luna S'mores B+
80°-88° feels like 102° winds 2S 2N 5NW 5W
The plan was for four loops or 30 miles. I went easy knowing it was going to be hot. Even the winds were hot. Big puffy clouds never hid the sun and no chance of a cooling rain. I called it quits at 3 loops. Still, a good ride.

Early ride. I miss the sun but not the heat it generates. SR56 has no streetlights and there were joggers who had no lights no wore anything reflective. I came upon them just as another bike was coming there other way with a very bright light that just about blinded me.
Two shorter loops.
This week 149.6 miles
This year 3793 miles
