And, in truth, in North Texas we have some advantages over our northern brethren. If, for example, you are considering a mid winter commute in, say, Minneapolis, you have to make your "bike or car" decision right at the moment when the cold is at its worst. In Texas, on the other hand, on those days where it is really hot, you leave for the daily commute right when the day's weather is most pleasant. And then you are committed.
Still, that doesn't explain why I have ridden every day this summer, even when I got sick. I'm not sure I know myself other than, after a while, it partly becomes a matter of not letting the weather get you down and partly of moving further beyond the boundaries of "fair weather cycling." Maybe, my brain just got cooked and I've gotten befuddled. Anyway, it seems best to double down and finish the hot streak to its end.
As of today, we've had 62 days where it got to 100F or higher. The record, set in 1980, is 69. I think we're gonna fall short and hit another #2 spot.
