I rode a Memorial Day bike ride on the “Kingwood – SH 242 – Kingwood” route totaling 34.39 miles. The sky looked threatening early in the morning but by the time I started (11:40 AM) the overcast sky was not so bad. From yesterday’s 93 degrees it dropped to 72 degrees when I started making me pull a long sleeve jersey from the closet. In the early miles I felt a chill but once I warmed up I probably could’ve worn a short sleeve jersey. Finishing at 2:10 PM the temperature improved to 79 degrees with the humidity not far from that (75%) making for a muggy ride.
Today’s miles put me over my May goal of 300 miles by 10.66 miles. If the weather cooperates I hope to add more miles.
Nothing out of the ordinary during the bike except for the flags displayed at many homes. There were a few “casual” bikers on the bike paths along the route. I used the new roads riding through Woodridge Forest. I wondered how they would be after last night’s rain but I didn’t see any difference from the last time.
