The weather has been ahead of schedule pretty much all year. We've already hit temperatures in the triple digits, something that doesn't usually happen until the end of July. Today's lunch time ride was baking with almost no wind. Breathing felt like sucking on a hair dryer! I would've gone through both water bottles, but the water was air temperature by the end of the ride.
The best times to ride right now are early morning, and the evening. Last night we went to a party at the Simpson's house up in the Timberline area. There were enough riders to make a good group ride, so we took off from the house, got a good ride in, and finished just in time for a good BBQ and fireworks.
Kristy also tackled the Ash Creek trail on her single speed. The trail is in beautiful shape, but is still quite challenging. The challenges are made even more visually challenging by adding the steep drop offs for most of the trail. Nevertheless, Kristy did a great job of surviving her first run on the trail!
