Denver Heat

Today was day 12 of biking to work. I’ve now saved 480 miles on my car (16 gallons of gas, $64) in commuting alone – that doesn’t count some small errands. I passed 600 miles on my bike since June 1, 2008 on the way in to work today. June 1 was a 101 mile day, but even without it I’ve had a good 6 weeks of riding. Today was of course ridiculously hot. Buckley AFB (east of town, largely separated from the heat island of the city) recorded 93F. Broomfield was at 95F. It felt warmer than that downtown, and my sunglasses were splattered with salt from dried sweat within 5 minutes of heading out from work this afternoon. Thankfully, it’s cooling off the next couple days.
