Another sweaty morning as this little summer “heatwave” continues to hang on.
And I’m all for it… keep Summer going!!! I’m not ready for Fall yet.

Even though TODAY is officially the first day of Fall.

It’s going to be a warm one today! Even in the early morning hours before the sunrise, my ride was already warm & sweaty. Beautiful clouds drifting across the sky for another beautiful summer day.

Big sky. Big clouds. Big skyline… and a great parking spot right by the Lake!

With only six days until Fall, it finally feels like Summer. Go figure. With a short “heatwave” going on, it feels great to finally have warm mornings again. Beautiful sunrise, fewer clothing layers and more sweat!!! All good. Welcome back Summer!!!

Clear skies. Calm water. Looks like the clouds of yesterday have moved out and we’re now looking at a beautiful forecast for the weekend to come… which also means a LOT more biking to come too!!!

After an “exhilarating & exhausting” couple days of “Sherpa-ing & spectating” in Madison this weekend, it felt great to get back on my bike to pedal this morning. Great clouds, Incredible colors. Another beautiful sunrise!!!

Clear skies. Beautiful colors. Nice silhouettes.
And quite a few waves crashing over the banks and up onto the bike trail.
A beautiful sunrise ride before heading up to Madison
for what will be a very exciting weekend!

Another dark & cloudy morning. Still a bit chilly…
but at least I was better prepared with an extra layer & wool socks!

And the sun GONE behind the clouds almost as fast as it “appeared.”

Okay, so the weather has changed. September is here and it feels like it. Cold, windy and dramatically cloudy this morning. Summer “might” be over… say it isn’t so! A mere 48-degrees when I started out into the dark morning on my bike. Kinda wish I had added a few more layers?!

And scene…

Not a cloud in the sky this morning. Just another sculpture along the lakefront bike trail. I didn’t see any signage to tell us who made this one… but we’ll say Thank You just the same!

And here’s the “non-silhouetted” & “non-sunrised” version… so close to the bike trail, and my bike!!!
