Red Flag=Storm Warning
Early in the ride I happened to glance at my bike computer and saw the temperature was 103F. It certainly didn't feel that hot, but it also cooled very quickly as I approached the ocean.
Again I backed out of riding to Fall River and instead decided on the Dartmouth, Ma route. Even though the thermometer said it was very hot, I didn't feel it at all on the bike. I stopped for ice cream in Padanaram (paid nair' um) and heard two women speak what I though was Arabic. I learned a couple of years ago not to speak in another language until I'm sure what it is. I really offended a man during a hike when I asked if he was Lebanese. He was from Israel and looked like he was ready to fight over my statement. These two were also from Israel and I gave them my best "ma shalom"
The ride continued on to the peninsula in New Bedford which added another 8 or nine miles. Over all it was a good day to ride a bike. Heavy rains tonight and tomorrow will allow me to catch up on some reading. And maybe clean the garage.
