It is so dang hot today (another round of 110+) that I decided to run over to home depot and buy a window AC! ( I bought my house 4 years ago and have NEVER before needed ac!) They have a 6,500 btu for $129 so I grabbed one. I installed it in my bedroom so at least now I should be able to sleep since last night I tossed & turned in 85 degree humidity! My regular floor fan just blows the hot air around! So now it’s off to work then to performance bike to buy a headlamp, then to the movies for Clerks ll! (More air conditioning in the theater…YEAH!)
It’s cooler here today…only 97. I just rode a little bit but I have a cut in my foot that isn’t healed yet and, well it hurts when I hit things with it:(
I’m not hurt too badly, just the usually bruised shins, but it’s really hot here too. I want to goo street riding at the mall late tonight when it cools down.
Ouch! Take care of that. Maybe put some antibiotic creme on it.
he’s been soaking it in soapy water.
edit: do you ahve neosporene? that stuff works like a miracle.
Yeah that’s good too.
Heh, I stopped with the soapy water a few days ago. I have that antibiotic cream stuff that I have been caking on constantly. It looked all scabbed up and good today so I rode. 360 unispins hurt really bad though, so now my shoe is off and more antibiotic stuff is back on.
it was so hot a foew days ago, I went to guitar center and read a books and played guitar and drums for like 4 hours.
how did you cut it? kicking over your bc again?
I feel ya, TBW. It breaks 105 on a regular basis here…I have to wait till after dark to even have a chance of riding comfortably. By some miracle, it made it down to 80 yesterday afternoon, so I got in a solid 2 hours of riding.
I can’t wait until winter again.
i finally got 661s my family does this this little fishing pond thing for our reunion and my grandma gets everyone a gift and thats what i got. stinks though cuz my uni is at our cabin so i cant ride.
That’s harsh man! I wish they made 661’s in beige or gray because black absorbs all the heat!
At least you have electricity to run AC. Apparently there are blackouts around here, although I’ve only noticed because my cable TV/Internet service was completely out last night and this morning.
where do you live in california? I’ve been having blackouts almost every day.
I have had at least 2 blackouts so far that I have noticed. It sucks when I am on the computer and it just goes black:(
this mornig up here in canada it was almost cold, when i went out for my morning ride I steped out and debated wheather or not to go get a sweatshirt!! I’m guessing things’ll heat up in a few days. untill then I riding as much possible in the nice weather:p
ride in the morning
I’ve started riding early in the morning (0630) before it gets hot. After coming home and spending time with the kids, I am usually too tired in the evening, and the morning is usually cooler anyway.
It’s also nice and quiet, with not much traffic.
I’m not a “morning person”, so getting up early has been an “interesting” transition. If I can do it, anyone probably can.
It’s the hottest summer that I can remember here.
However, still cool enough to ride in the evening. Actually OK to ride in the day with plenty of water.
Biggest peeve - too many holiday makers - who all think they are absolutely hilarious after a day on the beach and a couple of drinks in the evening.
People says it stings, but I think it tickles, and it cleans out cuts like no other.
Clerks II is hilarious!!!
