The Bike in Hot Weather

I get plenty of exercise in the summer months, despite the HOT weather here in the valley. Most of my riding is done in the city limits, but occasionally, I get off the beaten path, a risk a ride into the country. Such was the case a few days ago when the temperature reached the mid 90's.

My ride ended at "Coonskin Park" which is near the landing strip for Yeager Airport. Taking the back roads allows me to avoid the busy highway which is the normal route into this area.

The round trip for this ride is about 20 miles. I had the "dog spray" in my pocket when I exited the city limits (this time)  because I took a "bite" when I failed to be prepared for these critters last year. This years ride was uneventful, and I enjoyed myself while sitting around the swimming pool and golf course at the park.

On the return trip, I rewarded myself with "ice cream" from the local "Farmer Market" in downtown Charleston.

For those who find "signs" interesting, I like this one.

Hi John,

I recognize the farmers market from our visit to Charleston last year. That is a nice place -looks like they run different stuff throughout the growing season. It was late summer or fall when we came so lots of pumpkins and gourds and apples and stuff.

Keep riding -It keeps you young!

Hi guys...thanks for the comments. WV is a good place to live but a tuff place to make a living. I'm glad I'm finally retired..
