so I rode 12th. 10 miles. felt good. nice ride too, even if it was hot. Lightning bugs in the yard like minions. so I tried to go thursday, got a few feet down trail, and just too much lightning and thunder getting close, so I turned it off. This morning since TDF was flat stage, I rode. 15 miles. used the camel bak i bought yesterday off craigslist. kinda liked it. and the best part? my average speed is increasing. not that it really matters to me, but it is something I am sorta proud of. If I can push it up 2 miles more an hour, I’ll be happy. riding on the way out, no bugs, on the way back, they ramped up. It also got hot, but not too humid.
tomorrow there will be no ride. tomorrow is the concert.
