    It is 5am, 71 degrees and I am wide awake.

    Miss M says, "Let's go get breakfast!"

    Who am I to say no to food?

    Turns out Winter Garden doesn't get up early on Sunday (but the street fair looked to be good). We fell back on "Plan B" (there's always a "Plan B" with us) and rode a few more miles to breakfast.

    It was well worth it.

    Eating in the middle of a ride is always a balancing act between tasty food, hunger and the need to ride another couple of hours in increasing heat. We got it fairly right this time and the miles home flew by.

    Time to dust off the bikes and get ready for tomorrows adventure!

    An SPF30 sunblock jersey from bikejerseys.com really the best summer jerseys we have ever used.

    Except when it is cool, they are really bad in cooler temps.

    Cool pix!
    Sorry to be a buzz-kill, but that is packaged hollandaise on the eggs bene - not the real deal. Color is too dark, and the texture appears grainy, homemade is much lighter & silky smooth.
    Yes, I too cook, and sauces are my thang.

    What the hell is hollandaise? Actually I didn't even know that it was eggs benedict. Alas I have lived a sheltered life of ham and cheese omelets. Well, I am going to eat my dinner of whole wheat pasta, and an apple and a scoop of peanut butter for desert. YUM, prerace dinner.

    I live right across the street from that First Watch. Where were y'all riding in from? It looks like Groveland area.

    MB1 - Thanks for the post. I used to train before dawn (and breakfast), this brought back a lot of memories! I really like the front wheel shadow pic.

    Yes, I've always thought being a morning person is a blessing; us "larks" always get to enjoy the sweetest part of the day.

    Right now it is 5:30 am and 70 degrees in Central Texas and early morning bike ride season is just around the corner.

    I'm going to check those out.

    Came across Skin Cooler tops from De Soto (triathlon company) online last week and was thinking about one for riding in our torrid Texas summers, but I don't think these have quite as good sun block coverage as yours. This is their blurb:

    Skin Cooler ™ is a special moisture-radiating material that actually offers a cooling effect. They are guaranteed to keep your body cooler in training and in racing than not wearing anything. If you do not find this to be true, return them for a complete refund! Skin Cooler™ fabrics block 75% of UVB rays, which is about as much as any bike jersey you may wear. We recommend you wear sunscreen underneath.

    They also have arm and leg "coolers" in this fabric.
