HAWT! One of those days you just want to get it over with...
Frozen water bottle trick worked a little bit.
There were a zillion squirrels out too, lying in the shade until you got close to them, then they'd run away. Little ones, about the size of rats.
I drafted these guys for about 3 revs in my 39x21... it was awesome.
After that I chased "The Girl With The Yellow Tires" and pretty much kept her in sight the whole way up but never managed to get closer than about 30 seconds.
'Possed to be cooler this weekend... booyah.
