Just passing through.

Been riding a lot but not stopping by and posting. Riding to much perhaps that I am  a tad on the exhausted side often. Also working the non biking muscles and stretching, makes for a better ride. Today's heat index was 115, humidity about 75 and temp 96. I lifted after work,  strengthening shoulders, arms, and chest, doing sits, and leg curls. No ride today trying to store up some energy in the legs for a metric gravel tomorrow and finish stronger then I have been. I have in the freezer two 32 ounce water bottles and a 24 oz V8. Hot rides V8 makes a good blend of minerals and such. It is easy to overdo the salts and 24 oz of V8 is about right for a 5 hour ride. I'll need a refill of fluids somewhere out there.
Ok, ok, I'll stop rambling with this boring talk. On tomorrow's ride I will try to capture a picture of the UFO I have been seeing, or that Sasquatch apeman I have been seeing out there bicycling. The fastest I have ever rode in my life is when he tried to chase me down, and who knows what he had in mind if he would have got me.

 So ya'll come back now.

Glad to hear you've been riding. The V8 idea sounds interesting, but I'm afraid I'd want to add some vodka!!!!

Keep riding Dave.

That must be a winter pic. He shaves his legs in the summer.

I thought I told you not to post that picture of me.
