Thursday Night Eastside Ride. :( 8/3 - Cancelled

Sorry all but I'm out for tonight. Just too hot and not fun. Hope to see you next week.


Temps are going to be about 105. if your interested in showing up, post up and let me know. If nobody wants to go I'm good with that. If you do we will meet at 6:45 and leave at 7:00, on the dot. I'm not waiting. Ride until dark or later. Plan is to head up towards Ripplebrook.
Must be two or more riders or your on your own.

Fuck a bunch of that. That is WAY out of my +/- 3 degree comfort zone.

Next week! I got stuck up in Everett for work this week so i would be unable to make it anyways, but i'm not sure how i would get across town in that heat without breaking a few rules. : ) Luckily up here the high is only supposed to be 90, unfortunately my work area is going to be about 110 anyways. sometimes you cant win...

A 7:00PM start seems like a darn good call...I left a friend's tonight at around 8-8:30PM and actually felt a tiny bit of cool air under the trees on Foster...

Let me know if anyone else is running...I'm up for a few miles...

Working in this heat has taken some of the fight out of me. I'm out this week.

I've been leaving work at 1pm and working from home this week, and even that has reminded me that there is literally no way to ride in 100+ weather that is even remotely comfortable. Maybe if I soaked my clothes in ice water before the ride...

What? Cancelling a ride just because it's hot?

Hell yes. Waited to see if the 105 forecast was going to be accurate. Looks like it was.

Listen to the wise old master, grasshoppers. Triple digit temps mean soft tires, melting asphalt, slick tar snakes, dehydration for rider(s), increased hostility amoungst cagers, over-heating bikes...all kindsa bad things can happen. Sometimes it's just better to wait it out...
