Yes. I rode today. Go figure.
You can ride year round in Phoenix. All summer long. Really. I’m serious. You just have to do it really early in the morning.
I had the time this morning. I set the alarm for 4:30 am. Fill up the water bottles, stuff my big ass into a kit, top off the tires to 8 bar… Go!
There are not a lot of cars out on the road at the ass crack of dawn. And that is just fine with me. I did see a whole lot of cyclists. I often see three or four. I saw a lot of ones and twos go by, and one big group of about twenty. Someone shouted out “Hey, big jonny!” as they rolled past. I was pretty pumped. I must be doing something right.
Damn purdy that time of day, too.
Rolled home feeling pretty damn good about myself. That was a win.by
