The summer has finally arrived here in Arizona. and it is hot… Africa hot. To give you some kind of an idea try this: Turn your ove on to 400, wait until it is up to temp. Next plug in a hair dryer. Now put your head in the oven and turn the hair dryer on full blast at your face. Yeah it is kind of like that. Now just imagin riding your Mt bike on the trails like that in the afternoon. Needless to say yesterday was my last afternoon ride for a while, it was 112 which was the ambient temp but that doesn’t include the mass about of radiant heat coming off the large rocks on the trail. I would say in some parts it was up to about 120+. needless to say I only got in about 10 miles, my eyes were too dry to keep going. So i will just be doing a few morning rides per week during this time of year.
My wife and I just got back from Greece. The Greeks didn’t take it to well with my helmet, they thought the Romans where invading them again. Because this was a group trip i was unable to hit the Greek mountain side to see what they have to offer, but the trip itself was great, especially Santorini. Check out some of the pics.
Think About it: What do you say if you’re talking to God, and he sneezes?
