|Foundations for the pre-ride weekend checklist|
Warm and overcast morning preparing for day. Light winds, light traffic. Air fresh from the night's wicked thunderstorms. Bicycle tuned, lubed, fits like a glove, rides like it's invisible and silent. Legs good, knees good, lungs good, brain in serviceable (or nearly) condition, heart steady on. Quiet pictures from rides on a morning like this one. Summer morning, bright and hot, wrap me up.
