Another August day in Chico
Activity: Mountain Biking
Area: Upper Bidwell Park
Weather: 96 awful degrees when I started, below 90 post sunset
Distance: Who knows? (1.5 hours)
Avg spd.: Slow! Rocky and technical terrain.
How I felt: Good, albeit like frying bacon due to the heat.
Thing to remember: Stopped in a shady area to avoid blistering sun and watched four deer munch some shit on the ground. Mid-ride I jumped into Big Chico creek with all my shoes/clothes/gloves on. Ride home was cool, damp and excellent.
