Around 7:30 this morning it was 50 degrees at my house but the forecast promised it would warm up. By 11:57 when I left on my bike ride the promise happened warming to 75 degrees. I was leery so I wore a long sleeve jersey under a short sleeve jersey and I was comfortable but I think I would have been okay with just the short sleeve one. Since the last bike ride went south and east today I chose the “New Caney – Gene Campbell Road” to ride north and west for a total of 35.29 miles. This pushed November miles up to 239.1 just 10.9 miles away from my goal. Year to date I am at 7,074 miles. Through Thursday and maybe Friday the warm weather shows in the forecast so more bike riding this week.
No rest stop on today’s bike ride making for a quick overall time and finishing at 2:19. One water bottle kept me hydrated with the sweat evaporating quickly from the low humidity and light SW 7 mph breeze. I had to look wide and far to see a few small clouds in the sky. It warmed a few more degrees to 78 at the end of the bike ride.
November biking in southeast Texas is great with weather like today’s.
