Getting Baked



You know the quote “the best laid plans of mice and men”?

I planned to ride today, be in nature, fresh air and sunshine, exploring and adventuring.

I wanted to fill that old creative tank with new energy.

All I managed to do was get baked.

And by ‘baked’ I mean hot temperatures baking the bejeesus out of me.

The tank was depleted.

Sun, Bike, Bicycle


No matter how fast or hard I pedaled

I could not outrun the heat today.


A day off in 95Β° on a bicycle

Is still a good day off.














Bike helmet removed for this picture only (I was posing in this one).

    I am glad you made the most of a “hot” situation! Sounds exhausting, however. πŸ™‚
