Woowww! That is some suspension system he must have.

I may ride for the tag today. Have some errands to do downtown. Not relishing this heat/humidity combo though.

It is hot out, and miserable if in stop and go traffic.. If you can keep a breeze going on your ride, first take off your shirt, soak it under the faucet and then put it back on under your jacket. It will keep you cool for about 30 min that way. A wet bandana will help keep the neck cool for only about 15. Visor closed on the helmet keeps the hot air from blasting the face.

OK.. time to get ready to go ride.

I'm with you on that so I'm trying to figure the best route from Moncure to Brier Creek with minimal stoplights.

Good suggestion Stephen...Even better is having an evaporative coolvest...you soak it for 2 mins and it will last several hours. A t-shirt or Under Armor type shirt underneath and your mesh jacket over. It will keep you cooler than not having it...I have one with sleeves as well. Dont leave home without it. Also helps not to have a big windscreen on your bike as airflow is necessary to make it work +1 on keeping the faceshield down too

I been bruced by the scooter! I took a ride out there after I ran my errands this afternoon. Hot slab but not a bad ride.

That's twice I've been bruced on this tag location. Didn't save my file from the last time b/c it just wasn't that interesting of a shot. Durn it.

Looks like y'all will need to hit it again!

Goodberry's custard melts in about 1 minute in normal weather. In this heat, you can't DRINK it fast enough. My wife and kids love that place, for the life of me I can' figure out what the attraction is.


Still too hot to ride! Armchair tagging today!

Say hi to Louis Steven
I found at least 4 Goodberrys so trying to figure it out with your "clues" leaves me clueless

Love the milkshakes from there. I can go a bit out of the way, and hit 3 of them on the way to this tag.

3 milkshakes to a tag! This calls for a reminder pic:

It just shows I'm good man. I got a long way to go before I'm to fat to ride.

I'd be good for 3 on the way home too.
