    Heat is almost gone!

    Looks like we have survived another Arizona summer! Mornings are in the 70's and the high temp for the day is just barely below triple digits. If this posts jinx us and we suffer a heatwave, you may stone me on the trails!!

    Kudos to all of us who rode through the summer, most of us in the early morning hours, but a few of the tough ones (RJ...) in the heat of the day!

    I managed a good 80 rides this summer between June and August and feel pretty good about it. Met a lot of cool people on this forum, on Strava, and on the trails. Looking forward to some epic rides this fall and winter. Hope to increase my SS strength and endurance!

    The coming weeks are why I put in all those 3pm summer starts, no need to 'get into riding shape' for the season. Tons of big rides coming up & the AES fall season is upon us.

    There is no season, just altered start times.

    It was hella nice being able to lay about the house until noonish or three then head out and ride a couple hours. Can't start in the mornings in the winter, those 50 degree nights make me feel as I'm about to catch my death.

    Been riding all my life but made the switch to MTB in June. Eagerly awaiting some nicer, less humid weather. That heat zaps all the energy out of me.. getting up at 4:30am sucks.

    Just in time for me to start the new job too. Haven't enjoyed the weather this week since the physical side of the job (learning the route tech's job so I can manage the shop better) is like a strength workout and by the time I get home-no energy left for cardio! It will balance out soon-just happy to be working again.

    Time wise- I start at 4:30 in the morning but will have most of the afternoons and weekends off, so for winterish riding, the schedule is going to be perfect!

    Man, it's gonna be lows of 70 soon. I fear I'll catch my death. That's like hypothermia risk.
