This month, I'm going to try to go a little further - biking to a new place at least once a week and to one of my appointments later in the month (a 20 mile round trip on the bike) - the furthest I've gone at one time.
I have been humbled by the heat, having come down with a case of heat exhaustion a couple weeks ago. Silly of me not to have water with me even on the shorter rides. But that was all the reminder I needed and now every time I stop for an errand, I chug some water. Easy cheesy and my rides are now better than ever!
So here's to another month of biking all over town and the amazing freedom (not to mention simple-green-frugal-ness) of life on two wheels.
