Temperatures in the 70's are absolutely wonderful. I actually enjoyed cool water through the entire ride.
Big dead rattlesnakes in the gutter are just as scary as live rattlesnakes. For a short period of time anyway.
Jon got his first taste of dirt today. Literally! Luckily he has showers back at work. He went over the bars on a steep sandy downhill. It's like riding on the beach. Thankfully it's also a good place to crash if you're going to crash. (Lakeview Hill for you other people that have crashed there...)
