Ride Notes for August 26th, 2014

I'm logging today as a "short ride" since I would normally ride 30 miles or less, but really what I did was two separate rides that were both around five miles in length. Here's the scoop: I started another class at a local college, which is near enough for me to ride to. So really I'm commuting, more-or-less, but since the college course is my new evening activity on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I have to take what I can get.


I rode a total of 9.6 miles, which is about the length of a ride to and from the Saguaro National Park, which used to be my short ride until I grew ambitious and started increasing the length of my short rides by 10 or 20 miles. (To be fair, I rode 9.0 miles yesterday, so over the past two days I rode a grand total of 18.6 miles.)

The ride was mostly-uneventful; I was riding in blue jeans and a polo shirt instead of my normal cycling attire, which combined badly with the high humidity, so I was sweating pretty badly by the time I arrived at my class. (I'll have to remember that and leave home a little sooner in the future so I have some time to recover before class.)
