Hello There, Fall

In Miami we need external cues to mark the change of seasons. I personally use beers: once the seasonal selection changes at the store, I know we’ve moved on. It is now Autumn according to this calendar.

Which is awesome, because Fall is my favorite season of the year. Not that we get much a change in weather in Miami, mind you; it is still hot here, with daily temps in the upper-80s/low-90s. But the breeze has changed a bit, and as October rolls in we will see some cooler climates arrive (read: temps in the 70s).

That means bike season is here. While the northerners have been enjoying their Summer out on their bikes, we’ve had to deal with 100°+ days and daily summer storms; hardly the best outdoor weather. But with Fall arriving, more and more people will venture out on two wheels and that’s fantastic.

I know I’ve been remiss in riding my bike during the Summer months. I asked forgiveness of my bike and promised to take it out for rides a lot more from now on. You should too. Welcome to Autumn, bike season.

    Here in Central Texas, today was below 90 degrees for the first time in 125 days. Just 88 today! So welcome to fall. We had a record 85 days of 100 degrees or more, and all sorts of daily records fell. Yes, it looks like tomorrow will be in the upper 90s but even a single break is encouraging!

      Here the days are still hot as heck but the nights are cooling off ever so slightly. We take any little change as a small celebration!
