We've been stuck in a weather pattern that has been hazy, hot, and humid with storms usually in the afternoon.
Most of the area where I can ride is pretty flat and you can see for miles. This means two things. You bake in the sun with no shade and you can see storms forming and where they are very easy. Today I took advantage of being able to see the storms as I dodged a few for the first 3hrs of my ride before I felt I was plenty hot and need to cool down. I took a turn and jumped into mother nature's sprinkler. It felt great! As soon as I thought I was good I took another turn, as there are many roads to choose from, and headed for the dry.
After 30 minutes of baking in the sun some more I was wishing I was back in the rain. It's the only time of the year I enjoy riding in the rain. The next few days looks like it will continue to the be much of the same.
