Tour de France is ON. First tough mountain stage today. Lots of folks dusting off their bikes for a Diablo ride.
One of them wasn't JB. Just me today, but I had 65 Strava Flybys. Most of them named their rides something about HOT.
32°C at Junction at 9am... one day I'll applaud myself for doing the sensible thing and skipping the Summit. But today it felt like I was wimping out.
Got bit by a giant horsefly at Junction, but I slapped the bastard in the act. I enjoyed seeing my blood ooze out of his mouth as his he writhed in agony on the hot pavement. Sorry, no photo.
|Lots of new pavement patches on the road.|
I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember any crack in this section.
|This rider had her saddle a little too high, |
but she passed me too fast to benefit from my fitment advice.
|I checked my recent results. |
I should probably rename the "4-minute sign" to the "5 minute sign".
Wildlife Encounter: a coyote pup near the ZigZag.
I tried to make friends with him, he did not reciprocate my offer.
|C'mere little fella... I won't hurt you.|
