It’s not suppsed to be this hot in September

What the hell is going on here?  This weekend felt like Mid July, not Mid September.  We’re not supposed to have to deal with 90+ degree weather anymore.   Well, champs don’t let that stop them!   This past Thursday, Lynne, Jeff W., James, Tara, Robert, Bryn, and I all participated in the Thirsty Thursdays ride down at Velo Garage and Tap House.   We also somehow convinced Scott Timme to take a break from his PE exam studying to come and join us for a beer after the ride.  It’s one of the larger gatherings of TBD that we’ve had in a while.  We also invited Derek Rowland to join the site.  He just bought his bike this summer and has been riding as part of the Velo Garage Rides for a couple weeks now.  Welcome Derek!

This Sunday morning (before it got too hot), I went out for a solo ride, which is something I hadn’t done in a while.  I road the Indian Creek Trail some, and then came up Lee and some of the Leawood North Loop.   If you’re interested in my route, here’s what I did.

Sometimes its nice to get out there on your own with just you and your thoughts.   Helps clear the mind and reset for the week.   I saw that Craig Miller also got out for a ride last night.  Putting up 14 miles in the heat.  Nicely done!
