It's the middle of July, and the heat is pretty intense outside, not to mention the humidity!  In weather like this, unless you are participating in a water activity, being on a bike is not a bad thing.  At least you get a some air flow as you travel!  The trail has some nice, shady sections to ride, and there are many shady spots to sit and relax along the way.  Thankfully, the cooler days of fall aren't too far away.   Two upcoming cycling events you should check is in Pensacola, Florida and the other is a local event on the Chief Ladiage Trail. Pensacola Cycling Classic - September 12-13 GALS Cycling Event and Ride - October 24 See you on the trail!
