Today I bike commute 31 miles in two hours and 16 minutes and averaged 13.6 miles per hour. I rode in to work via Bee Caves and Barton Springs and then rode to the gym via Bee Caves and up 360.
Weather conditions were
|90Ã‚Â°F||67Ã‚Â°F||49%||10.0 miles||29.89||From ESE|
I had trouble riding up Great Hills after turning off from 360. Right afrt I started up the very steep hill (to me) I decided to shift into my Granny Gear and I lost my chain. I was very hot and tired at the time and tere is no shoulder and there was a lot of traffic at the time. I waited for all traffice to pass and put my chain back on and then attempetd to get on my bike to continut the steep climb. I had to ride out into two lanes of the street to get my balance and enough momentum to start riding up the hill.Ã‚Â I am proud to be able to ride this year in the Texas heat.Ã‚Â Last year I could not ride when it was this hot, especially up hills.
