Heat!

This photo does not adequately convey the heat of the day today, which feels as if it is in the 30s, there are heat waves coming up off the asphalt and the sun is quite strong, though it wil get much morse as summer approaches.

This heat, however, has inspired me to get new wheels and brakes for my Speedwell as I recently made a trip on it which involved going up and down hills on a hot day. I had to push up the hills due to the lack of gears and push down the hills due to brake fade experienced near the top of the hill. Being a long and steep hill, it was not the sort of hill I would like to lose my brakes on. I would also like to be able to spend more time sitting on my seat when I ride as I have the most comfortable saddle on it I have ever had!
