I came a little late to the party last year, I think, but I’m already signed up for the Bike Commute Challenge, sponsored by the Bicycle Transportation Alliance here in Portland. At least this year I could sign up as “I rode last year.”
With the wretched heat we’ve been having this summer it’s really put a damper on how many days I could ride. We’re looking at 99-100 or so today again, so obviously I didn’t ride in today. By Friday it’s supposed to be back to normal, low 80s so I’m hoping to get back in the saddle. It’s been too long, and I know my muscles are going to complain mightily. Mentor has already logged 140 miles this month. Me – zero.
