Ring of fire

Johnny Cash came to mind during today’s ride.

Note to self: DO NOT wait to ride until midday, especially when the forecast says 38-40*C (around 100*F).

92 km in 3.5 hours around Quarrata and Vinci. Enjoyable up until the last 20km when I really started to feel the heat on the flat. Legs tingling, mouth dry, in desperate need of electrolytes and water that WASN’T HOT.

Happy before heat exhaustion set in…

Granita was necessary.

Always an olive tree in the backdrop.
