My rides are growing more meditative. Therapy from a tough couple of days. With a setting like this...


... one cannot help but feel better. The only problem are the bugs. With warm temperature, no winds the gnats are out in swarms. So thick I can't take my sunglasses off. I set the headlight to jogger-retina-burning setting. Can't breathe through the mouth either. Since the training goal is steady aerobic enduance, breathing through the nose works just fine! I still eat a bunch of bugs.

This rhoadie work is expected this time of year. But the call of the dirt is strong.
