Jun-22: Bahama Beach 103-km perm-pop

Alternate Title # 1:
Use It  OR  Lose It!

Alternate Title # 2:
The Heat is On!

It has been much cooler so far this June than last.
At least it seems as if it has been cooler.
But Friday, Jun-22, seemed to be trying to make up for the arrears all at once.
In a few weeks, after getting acclimatized, the same heat + humidity won't feel quite so bad.
However ...
Certain people may like starting this route at 0900 on a weekday in the summer months. 
They are welcome to continue to do so.

I, on the other hand, will be starting at 0600 or 0700 for the next few months.
I'm already looking forward to the middle of September.

commute --> Bahama Beach 103-km perm-pop --> TLC-4-Bikes (new location) --> commute; 89.3 m.; est. 5h56 in-motion; 15.0 mph; BB rando elapsed time:  5h11  --  too much HEAT.  

Q-1 tot: _22 rides; 1,610.3 m.; 108 h, 42 m; 14.8 mph. 
A-M tot: _20 rides; 1,701.6 m.; 115 h, 24 m; 14.7 mph. 
Jun tot: __6 rides; __782.3 m.; _51 h, 25 m; 15.2 mph. 
YTD tot: _48 rides; 4,094.2 m.; 275 h, 43 m; 14.8 mph. 

After this ride:  89. 
Meaning that I have completed at least 89 different rides that were at least 89 miles long. 
As the Eddington Cycling Number rolled over to 89, two 88-mile rides "fell off the list": 

I had forgotten the 2011 ride -- until I looked up the post -- and chuckled at Branson's fixie comment. 
The 2009 ride ... I get a reminder of that every time I do MikeD's Kerr Lake Loop.
