Today’s Bike Ride

Map for the day
Distance: 14.82 miles Time: 1:15:00 Avg: 11.8 mph
For our anniversary, I had to have the truck at the house for a ‘special delivery’ and today was the day to take it back. I threw the bike in the back of the delivery truck and went to work. My plan was to work a couple hours and then leave before the thick of the heat of the afternoon. My plans were in opposition to the real world and I ended up leaving after about 6:00 pm. It was about 102 degrees out.
I smeared on some sunscreen, loaded up on water and started off. Because the sun was already setting, and the trees along the bosque trail, I was nicely shaded for about 80% of the ride. It was very nice. The heat wasn’t getting to me too bad and the breeze from the motion, even with hot air cools you down a bit.
I made it home with very little issue and felt pretty good too!
A nice ride.
