#330daysofbiking Days 81 & 82: and now, for something completely different… almost

man hits the ground (and not on a bicycle)


Not that I am a huge baseball fan or anything … but who doesn’t like a baseball game on a summer evening, cheap seats, beer and peanuts?

RIding on Saturday (Day 81) was a pretty boring commute/errand-running trip.  To the pet store.  To Target.  To the grocery store.  Just plain hot and nasty.  Arriving everywhere like a complete sweat-ball.  Oh well.

In the evening, the entire gang decided to head into Chattanooga to catch a baseball game.  The Lookouts are our local double-A team, an affiliate of the L.A. Dodgers.  Always feels like summer, sitting at a ball-game – even though I tend to do more people-watching and everything other than paying close attention to the game.  I just like being out there, sitting with Mark and the boys.  And a different setting for picture-taking.

Day 81 errand-riding

Today was another hot one.  I think, on average, we’ve been in the 90’s every day this week – with heat indexes at 100’F or above.  Just pretty miserable to be riding for any length of time.  Saved the riding for the evening once again – Mark and I took a spin on the Xtracycles.  Just around “the neighborhood”.  The cicadas are out in full force, their droning song fills the air.  We need some rain.  We need some cool.
