Heat, glorious heat, returned to Northern Virginia today. It was accompanied by a stiff breeze, but we’re not going to be negative today. Today was about warm weather rides and things that haven’t occurred for me in the past several months:
- I used sun screen
- I put ice in my water bottles
- My tires had a yellow band of pollen on them
- I smelled freshly cut grass
- I sweated profusely
- My nose didn’t drip
To top it all off, I beat my personal best time for this 31-mile route by two minutes and briefly chatted with a man who was cycling to Florida.
It was a good ride.
