Ahhh, suburbia, where all bike trails follow either power lines or ditches. Nature at its best, no?


Also, shade? We don’t have much of that crazy concept. I found myself doing what Bella-dog does on hot walks: slooooooow through the shade, fast through the sun. Regardless I still spent at most 10 minutes of my 90 minute ride in shade.

Yes, I bathe in sunblock and still have awesome tan lines.
