Last night the temp remained in the 40s, too warm for my heater even on low. I turned it off part way thru the night. I could have slept w/ just a flannel sheet which didn’t make any sense. Shut off the heat and pull over the down blanket.
I drove back to Sedona to do my wash then drive down to VOC for 1:00 ride. Rain started falling while my clothes were in the dryer. I decided to drive down to VOC for the ride and let somebody make a ride decision. rain fell before I arrived. Jimmy analyzed his on line weather forecast and concluded the rain was up canyon. He gathered Duffy, Jeff, touron Phil, and me. We rode up Shades on wonderful tacky sand from the rain. Jimmy remained behind to speak w/ his ill dad, we waited for him @ the playground which is a slab of flat slick rock. Jeff and Duffy knew of this roll in line they wanted to ride. See for yourself:
He made it and so did Jeff. Me? I took pics.
Conventional work day and shitty weather kept the crowd down. Heading N we could see up canyon to rain clouds. We were still dry. We rode the length of Sleezy Breezy. I made several features I previously didn’t make. Getting a bit better. I rode all in the middle chain ring which keeps my heart rate down and collapsing from lack of breath. I am slower by prolly by the same amount. I took more time getting down Shades back to the shop. The others except Phil finished before the rain fell. I was dampened. A energy replacement beer. Plans were made for a morning ride tomorrow out @ Dry Creek. Forecast calls for showers after 11:00. We might finish our ride dry. I cancelled a PT appointment for ride. Shower @ Snap: clean body for clean sheets.
Last night for the second time I put a castor oil saturated cloth on my shoulder. My shoulder has less pain.
Drove back to crowded Deer Pass.
Tonight the Zags play BYU @ home. Plan is to watch it on line while using faster 4G device.
