Marvelous May

Another picture perfect day with temps in the low 80's, bright blue skies and no humidity. Another year without Spring. We went from a long cold Winter to warm Summer. March and April 10 degrees colder than normal. May an easy 10 degrees warmer. Even better for cyclists is little to no rain for the month. Fortunately, we had enough precipitation this past Winter to fill those reservoirs, but the grass is beginning to brown like it does in August. I got off to a slow start this year and am 250 miles short from where I was last year. To be fair last years Florida trip added 825 miles. I managed 18 days of riding and 700 miles for May and that's with work. I'm down to 1 bike which makes things easy. After 9 years and more than 27k miles My ICE T still rides great and is a joy to ride. We are heading down to South Carolina for a much needed mini vacation and I am taking my trike. A little less than 2 weeks after we return I will be off to GOBA, my favorite supported tour.
There is still a couple days left to May.
Keep em comin!

Yesterdays humidity brought these reptiles out.
