Update for the Week
1,760 miles! That's what riding to work and back (36 mile round trip) 48 times so far this year gets ya. That's almost 6 tanks of gas at $50-$55 per tank or about $300 total (almost enough for that new Niner EMD 29er frame). Got in 3 days this week: Monday, Wednesday, and today(Friday). Monday was HOT. I knew I was in trouble when it was about 84 degrees on the way in at 7:30am. The trip home started at 4:30pm, 97 degrees. I'm sure it got hotter over the next hour as I went from one drinking fountain to the next coming down the Mill Creek paved trail. By the time I got home, I was DONE. Fortunately the heat wave came to an end and Wednesday wasn't that bad and today was about the same. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather.
