I remember

These days in the Ozarks are hot and sultry, like much of the mid-section of the country. I have only biked to work one day this week for various reasons and have just a few scenes from yesterday’s commute to offer.

An empty fruit market stand that will be busy later in the day

The water course at Phelps Grove Park. My late father-in-law worked on this WPA project in the mid 30s.

On the way home I turned down this avenue so I could get some shade. Yes, I am weak....

This parking garage close to the ballfield has a cool, gentle breeze coming out of the lowest level. Ahh.

A milestone. I passed 1400 miles on the hybrid since last August.

A hot afternoon sky over Springfield.

But even with the warm temps, I remember a few months back….

Thanks, ...

... but, no thanks.

Stay happy,


About rlhoover

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??

    You know, I was just thinking the other day, I complain about the heat less and less each year. You’ve just hit upon why that is!

    You claim you have gone 1400 miles but your photo CLEARLY shows only 1399.9 miles. This INACCURACY casts a heavy cloud of doubt over everything else you claim.

        I think it is plain who I, the Peccadillo Patrolman, believe. And it would have been so SIMPLE to just ride another tenth of a mile before taking a picture and bragging. But NOO-OOO-ooo, you had to OVERSTATE the situation and reach for unearned and undocumented glory. Tsk. I say again, TSK! And, since we are citing the Great Americans of Hollywood, I give you Oliver Hardy: “ANOTHER fine mess!!”
