Finally the cool of Autumn is here and I can get out and ride...ride...ride. I spent the morning meandering around the hills of home with Betzi. With a total gain of 1,840 feet and averaging a whooping 7.2 mph I spent three hours on the rode towing 90 lbs of dog and trailer...loved it! The morning sun started to soak up the fog just as I was putting the longest and steepest stretches of climbing behind me.
Last week I rode the 700 three times. When the forecast is for heat followed by more heat I take the fast 700 out so I get some miles in before the sun kicks into high gear.
