I didn't get around to riding until 1:30 pm -- why? -- mostly laziness.
Temps during the ride: 91-93 F.
Didn't check the heat index, but it was likely approx 100F, maybe more.
Lacking a real story, I'll just describe the route.
- Sidewalks to Honeycutt -- which is a one-mile downslope.
- Left onto Durant -- which is a 1.4-mile shallow climb on smooth asphalt.
- Right onto Brassfield -- which qualifies as a flat nearly two miles (?).
- Right onto Deer Trail -- with immediate drop and then a stiff climb back up.
[Back in the day, one of the best rando climbers did Deer Trail once, and swore off it.
That's how steep that short climb is.]
- Right onto Honeycutt for a flat half mile.
- Left onto Brassfield for a mile-and-a-half flat ride on smooth asphalt.
- Right on tree-shaded Coachman's Way through the neighborhood with curves and short climbs.
- Right onto Honeycutt (where the road surface is breaking up) to climb up to Brassfield School.
- Right again onto flat, smooth Brassfield, a quarter-mile past Coachman's to the stop sign.
- Left onto Durant, but a quick right onto Baytree Ln left on Sandhurst Rd to add nearly a mile.
- Right onto Durant again, now downslope one-and-a-half miles on smooth asphalt.
- Right onto Honeycutt, climbing one-mile.
- Then sidewalks back to sleep quarters.
15.6 miles. 1:12 in-motion. 12.9 avg mph.
