35°C to start out though... that's hot. I had frozen my water bottle to the slush point, but it was melted all the way by the time I parked.
Mom and Dad sent me some birthday money last week and I used it for a professional bike tune up at Big Dave's Bikes. My cables were frayed and my shifting was a little off, and boy they fixed it up good. Turns out my cable guide under the bottom bracket had lost a screw so it was only being held on by the cables and that was messing with my shifting. I brought in a set of pretty cables I had intended to put on myself but hadn't gotten around to - glad I waited because they did a better job than I would've.
So yeah, a hot ride, a hard climb, and a nice descent.

Diablo Shoutout to Blog Reader MIDLAND who forgot to charge his electronic shifting system and had to use his little ring.
