I Can't Even Draw on Paper.....

Ever since Katydid and I did the Tour d'Oconee ride back in May, where the route map closely resembled the outline of a lion, I have had the (mostly? highly?) irrational hope that one day I would come home, upload a ride into the computer (which I do almost immediately most of the time), and discover that I have drawn a masterpiece by bicycle.

Who am I kidding? I can't even draw on paper.

I thought today's route came close. When I uploaded it, I thought to myself, "Oh! That's a........" But then the thought faded, and the route just looked like a bunch of squiggly lines.

Any of you artistic types see anything in today's route map?

Yeah, I was afraid of that. Me neither.

I wanted to do a short ride before I went to fetch Rozmo (and another paddler who wanted an early escape exit from the event). Trouble is, once I start riding, I don't know when to turn around and head home. I meant to ride between 23-25 miles, reaching my June goal of 500 miles with plenty of days to spare. I wound up riding 32 miles, but I still got home in time to shower before I had to leave. I'm sure my passengers appreciated that, since we ended up riding very squished together in the front of Hubby's little pickup truck.

It is okay to ride early in the morning, but after 10:00 it's much too hot. I'm thinking any really long rides are out of the question until it cools down around here. By that time, football season will have started.

I'm obviously not very artistic because it reminds me of a dinosaur. (and please don't ask me to try and explain how I see that!)

Um, a hammerhead shark? Sorry it's been so hot for riding!

Looks like a knight from a chess set.
