Hot Weather Riding

“Mango on the Trail” Cedar Park, 2022

Today the temperature was about 103°F / 39.4°C when I went out for a bicycle ride. It might be too hot for some, but I really wanted to get some exercise and didn’t feel like running was a good option, so I decided to go riding with Mango, my Kona Blast bicycle. She is super comfy, with an upright seating position, cushy handlebars, and granny gears so I can keep the effort on hills to a minimum.

I also wore my white helmet which has plenty of ventilation.😀

The ride was really fun, mainly because there were hardly any other people on the trail, which can get crowded on the weekends. But it was like a ghost town at mid-day, as people were taking shelter from the heat. I loved it!

The sky was amazing as well, with plenty of pretty clouds to look at, and they provided occasional respite from the sun.

All-in-all it was a great ride. The only bummer was that my Strava crapped out and didn’t record most of it. Oh well.
