Ok it’s another late night so this has to be another quick update..
Today is the 4th of July and I had been slightly apprehensive about whether that would make things harder; but instead the opposite happened. The roads were almost empty all day, so riding on the main road wasn’t actually that bad.
The temperature was nowhere near as high as the last few days but there are a few storms brewing and the air was noticeably more humid/muggy.
The wind was coming from the south today which meant a crosswind. Not too detrimental but definitely not helpful.
Another fairly long day tomorrow and somehow I doubt I’ll get away very early…
Excluding my lack of efficiency, the reason I’m so late tonight is that I had to change my tyres around (the rear one wears faster than the front). Actually, speaking of ‘wear’, that reminds me of a joke….

One says to the other: “Where’s the soap?”
The second nun replies: “Yes it does, doesn’t it!”
….Anyway, moving swiftly on, I’m off to bed.
