Thursday – Gentle run

Well, the day started off later than anticipated with a gentle run over to Henry Abercromby Landing on the Apalachicola River.  A pleasant 14 miles round trip , with a stop at the landing for a cup of tea ( from my flask) and a cinnamon roll.  ( well I had to replace all the energy I had expended )

The photograph is taken up river looking north west.   The sun behind me to the south east. Image

Cycling in Hot and Humid conditions

I am eventually coming to the conclusion that I am best suited to cycling in cooler climates. It is taking me  longer to acclimatize to the temperatures on the panhandle of Florida.  The days start off at 25 degrees C   (78F)  and climb up to 33C  (92F), but with 95% humidity. I am rung out after 10 miles, heavy with wet clothes and drained of energy.

So today’s adventure will take on a new approach. Carry extra water, extra energy bars and take it easy for an endurance run along the coast .    More to follow !
