Nice first ride in the COLD.
Gene welcome back! I was beginning to get withdrawal shakes.
how was riding today Gene?
Those airborn biting bugs were brutal along the lakefront. I felt okay riding in the shade, but it seemed 10 degrees hotter in the sunlight. I was out for 2 hours from 9:30 to 11:30. When I got home I was still sweating a half-hour later. Drink liquids ... constantly. If you go to the lakefront tonight, use insect repellant.
Brave, Gene. I went out for 40 minutes at 7:00 and it was already hot then.
I was very tempted to go in the water, but leaving my pack and camera on land forced me to keep going.
