The past week has probably been the best cycling weather of the year. Weather forcasters predict rain for the next 3 days and dropping temps. Weekend looks good in the 60's with some blustery winds, but, you know how weather predictions go. Today was a fantastic finish to this week with a 40 miler. I took my time in order to savor every moment of what will probably be the last 70 degrees of the year. This was the 3rd time I did the route this week and every day I saw something different. Today I noticed how the leaves were changing and falling in spite of the warm temps. I meet up with 3 women cyclists also enjoying this fine day. It was great to enjoy this day on mans most efficient machine.
