Why there appears to be so few cyclists down South and today in the middle of yet another downpour my DW offered a suggestion: it rains too darned much!
Each day seems to start off with lots of humidity and it isn't too long, say anytime from noon on that random downpours of tremendous ferocity seems to be pounding away out there! I know *I* sure wouldn't want to be caught in one of these while out biking!
Speaking of cycling, I sure didn't plan my outing for the Great Finger Lakes Bike Tour very well...! This is coming up the week after we return home! Which will be like two weeks of being OFF the bike with only a few days for me to cycle back and forth to work before I'm off to Watkins Glen! They offer bike rides from 15 miles on up to 100 miles! While I didn't anticipate hitting the 100 mile mark yet, I REALLY wanted to hit something significant such as perhaps 50 or more miles. It's going to be a challenge...I'll have Sat. / Sun. June 12-13 to test my meddle and see what I can do:
PLUS it will be a short and EXTREMELY crazy / busy work week for me prior to that so you all will likely see VERY little of me 'round these parts after Mon. June 7th.
But you know I'll be thinking of you all in the meantime!
