With the temperatures reaching high 80s and low 90s in the Valley, I knew I couldn’t ride too much longer. I had called Jesse, my car guy, two weeks ago to set up a time to put a bike rack on my car, so I would be able to drive to the coast and ride my bike in cooler temperatures. I have a Mini Cooper and it needs a special kind of bike rack.

Jesse told me he would call me when the parts came in, but when I hadn’t heard from him in over a week, I decided to give him a call. Jesse told me that my bike rack still hadn’t come in yet. He told me that he was waiting for a lot of parts to come in for other customers, so it’s not only me. So, I guess I have to wait.

Today, the temperature in Woodland Hills was over 90. Too hot for riding.
