You just have to ride faster so the wind blows harder.

80° at 3am today. A fantastic ride into work.

92° at noon. Hot, muggy, sticky ride home.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I was outside most of my working years. I could take the winter but not the summer.
