    May 26, 2020. The incredible heat wave continues. I made it out for a 25K ride in 33C heat. Today was otherwise planning and meeting day – I had sessions on Zoom, Teams and Meet. A multi-tool day. https://flic.kr/p/2j6CsKj

    by

    May 27, 2020. I had big plans for today but instead spent the day writing a blog post. Time well spent, though. It was too hot outside to cycle, so I stayed in and comforted out cats – pictured here are Emma (top) and Charlemagne (bottom). https://flic.kr/p/2j6zWZU
