Nice.  I was once a disney basher, been there multiple times, but we went in Sept last year and it was awesome.  I will go back.  Yes it is expensive, but I dropped $50 last night of some kiddie rides, and Hershey Park Tix are $62 ea. so Disney isn't that bad considering. Enjoy.

Nope. Luckily it all got through just before I left. Some wet roads and that was it (yay fenders). It was miserable humid though.

We've been enjoying a few days in a row here of dry, comfortable temps. A real treat. Supposed to end when the weekend ends and going back to the normally oppressive summer. With the mosquitoes being absolutely horrendous this year, I can't wait for it to get humid again too :)

Nice close buzz by some idiot this morning. Guess he really needed to squeeze between me and the oncoming car (forced off the road) so he could shave 2 seconds off his drive. No oncoming traffic and could have passed safely if he would have waited those two seconds. I just don't get it.

Then, at a 4-way stop, I got the typical idiot thinking they're going to get around me before the stop but don't realize I'm doing 20+ mph and they end up parked in the other lane. Stupid.

For next to no traffic this morning, the idiocy ratio was pretty high!

We're in a nice spell of hot/humid weather. Today's ride home should be in the lower 90s but with a 75 degree dew point. Soup. Can't wait  :( It was only 70 degrees this morning, but got no evaporative cooling due to the humidity.

so off topic a bit.


lunch ride yesterday, coming down a fast/twisty 8 mile descent there were two murderous cars.


first car, around a blind corner, REVERSING UP THE HILL IN THE RIGHT LANE.. ****er was driving up the hill in reverse like .2 miles to a turn he'd missed.


second car, nearer the bottom, was slowing... slowing... came to a complete stop in the roadway, not even near a corner. no idea. lady just looked lost.

oh, of course. I yell at people. I almost turned around to go back up after the idiot reversing up the hill but decided I'd probably go to jail.

Did the training crit last night, then had an emergency at work which kept me up later than norm, plan was to ride to work today and have wife pick me up then head straight to the beach.  I woke up with a pounding migraine and tired, did not feel like lifting a leg over the bike.  I popped my migraine meds and got dressed, headed out anyway.  About halfway, the headache was gone, I enjoyed a lovely ride in, mid 60's and humid but a joyous commute, so glad I rode in - http://app.strava.com/activities/69909088

This morning was pretty nice. 70 degrees. Storms to the north made for an interesting sky. Really peaceful ride until a wasp got caught in my slightly unzipped jersey collar and decided to sting my neck. Appears he got me twice by the time I got him out of there. Owwww.


The rest of the ride in was still peaceful and comfy but with a neck pulsing in pain. Could be worse.

Ouch, nothing like getting a bee/wasp in you jersey.  What was he doing out flying around that early?
