Thanks to multiple fires burning in northern California, the riding conditions have been way less than favorable. There is so much smoke in Carson City, that it feels like walking through the Carson Nugget Casino. Just awful.
Thanks to commuting to work and a dentist appointment, I still managed to get just over 6 miles in yesterday. I rode at a slow pace, trying not to huff in more smoke than I needed to. Still, I didn’t feel quite right all day yesterday. And looking out the window this morning, it looks like we will have more of the same today. The sun is rising behind the smoke, and casting a red glow in the house as I write this.
The local news media has warned people to stay indoors and avoid exercise. I think for most folks around here, that shouldn’t be a problem.
So how are you all dealing with this smoke? I’ve been going out to lunch instead of my usual singletrack lunch. Kim Lee’s Sushi yesterday, and Genghis Asian Fusion the day before. It’s been a nice break and some good food, but it’s time to start riding again…
