At last the Pterovélo is back together again. It has been in the garage now for 4 weeks. There were a couple of small upgrades that I wanted to get done before Roll Over America. I did not expect that it would take me that long to get them all done and the weeks without cycling made me a little nervous. I worried about the fitness but also the temp went up quite a bit since I last been in side the velo. All proofed to be ok today. I only went 34mi but it felt all good. The temp was 104°F and although it was hot, it was not a problem at all. Personally I think that it is much more comfortable in the velo at that heat than on a regular bicycle. First off all you are in the shade most of the time. Secondly, I could control the amount of air that flows over my body for cooling and don't get blown by a 30+mph hot wind that sucks away all your sweat and leaves you dry and hot.
I had the Big Apples on all three wheels today and enjoyed the soft ride a lot.

The gps missed the loop that went around lake Hefner today.( forgot to turn it on)
