Summer refuses to leave but that is okay. Today’s bike ride went north on the “New Caney – Gene Campbell Road” route. The start temperature was 85 at 10:42 AM and the finish temperature 91 at 1:44 PM with humidity at 63% and the wind 4 mph. No other cyclists along the route.
I rode smoothly along the route getting the overall average up to 15.0 mph stopping at the Valero station on FM 1314 at Sorters Road 25.4 miles into the ride. The picture below shows all of the firewood stacked up and the big sing for the pumpkin spice whoopie pie. I didn’t buy the whoopie pie but instead bought an orange Gatorade to carry me to the finish. A different form of sugar. I found out it takes about 15 minutes to drink a 32 oz cold Gatorade without getting a brain freeze which I almost did at first sip.
Once I was back in Kingwood I had to detour along Kingwood Drive where the workers are replacing the greenbelt. I will need to avoid the area for a few days.
Tomorrow a cool front may pass through keeping the temperature in the 80″s but probably no rain. I am at 6,304 miles YTD leaving 500 miles to get to my 6,800 mile goal by the end of October. I should go biking on Tuesday to get closer to my goal. So far I rode 221 miles this month.
