A blog about riding bikes in Alaska
Not really "on topic", but my weekly commute seems somehow related to your blog title(although shifted towards the high end of the thermometer). I live in Phoenix and bike commute. Tuesday afternoon it was 110+ on my ride home. This morning it was 50 and raining on my ride in. That's a 60 degree delta in 3 days. Not exactly "fire and ice", but close enough for me.
JT, I commuted in Phoenix when I lived their in the 1980s. I'll now prefer braving the ice in winter and moose in summer.My biggest fear in Phoenix wasn't falling -- it was falling and being unable to move off the hot pavement! Road rash is nothing compared to severe burns.Stay upright this summer. Avoid those hot-tar tattoos.
Tim, I ride almost exclusively on the canal banks. I've sampled the road burn available to wrong-side-up bike riders in the middle of the Phoenix Summer, and I have no desire to repeat the experience. That being said, I'd way rather be burning hot than freezing cold. I really enjoy your writing, keep up the good work.jt
