And, it was another legitimately beautiful day here in Missouri. Tomorrow it may feel like August, but today it felt like June.
This lone rider who locks her bike up in back disappeared from the lot earlier in the summer. I knew she was still riding. Sometimes I would see her riding to work or heading home. It was clear she was taking her bike inside. The last couple of days her bike has been back in the spot I'm accustomed to seeing it.
Tonight she was leaving as I was approaching my Symba. I told her I was glad to see her back and made some comment about having been afraid it was something I said. She told me with the heat the seat of her bike just got too hot. Now it was cool enough to leave her bike back outside where she prefers it. I had thought perhaps she had joined the ranks of the folks with high tech road bikes and jerseys with all kinds of advertisements all over them. It turns out it wasn't a culture change, but rather climate change that drove her from the lot.
- 65F/18C with a few clouds for the ride to work.
- 93F/34C and rather cloudy, but bright for the home ride.
