The changes.

Today it finally felt like fall is coming. The days are getting noticeably shorter and a cool breeze is blowing. That means mid-day road rides will be possible without feeling like you are riding across a pancake griddle under a broiler. The lights will come out at night instead of 5am to beat the heat.

I always feel blasé about road racing this time of year. The world championships were not terribly inspiring which didn't help. Cavendish definitely pulled off an amazing sprint to take the stripes. The Giro di Lombardia is coming up on October 15 and that is usually a great race.

Get out there and enjoy this weather!
