My Last HOT Neighborhood Bike Ride Til The Air Cools
I sort of got a bit overheated by the 4th or 5th mile.
As you can see, the heat does not stop golfers from golfing.
Are Texas golf carts air-conditioned? Texas mountain bikes are not air-conditioned.
In summers previous I have had myself a mighty fine time riding my bike when the temperature is in the century zone.
But, that wheel rolling took place on mountain bike trails. Mostly shaded, concrete-free, mountain bike trails. For the most part I don't get under much shade when I bike tour the neighborhood. And concrete and asphalt radiate heat, unlike the non-radiating dirt mountain bike trails.
So, why am I not rolling my motorized mechanical motion device to a mountain bike location? Well, last I checked the Gateway Park trails have yet to recover from the recent flooding. The River Legacy Park trails are back to normal, I think, but those trails are not as enjoyable as Gateway Parks'.
Just got email from TXU telling me to turn down my A/C this afternoon due to today's HEAT, so as not to cause rolling brownouts. The A/C just cycled on. It is set to cool to 85.
