The BWW 100 . . .uhm no

I really thought this would be closer to 100 miles, but it was so hot today I did not care.  :P

Heck of a ride Beercan!!! How is riding on Hwy 37?  What about 62? Seems like a lot of cars on 62 and they haul arse don't they? What about coming back on 301? Nice bike lane on 301 isn't there?  Amazing how 1 -2 degrees makes abig difference in the heat. If there isn't any cloud cover it's like death by frying pan.

Looks like you had a good ride. Considering how hot it is, going over 80 miles is pretty remarkable. Those streets scare me though. I'm I wuss on the roadie. I stay on quiet backroads but it really limits the miles
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

Gotta bow to you on this one fo sure... that heat is just painful.  I used to live on Saffold/Hwy 579.  Is it all paved now when it meets Hwy 62?  About 10-15 years ago, it was still hard packed dirt.  Also, why do you keep doing that little finger off Carlton Lake Loop road?  It can be more then 100-200 yars in and out and I know there is no store there.  Must be a hill or something...

I like SR 37 for the most part.  It is smooth and has a nice bike lane, that is until you get to Manatee county.  Then it turns into a rough road with no shoulder.  62 was a bad road for bikes and I will avoid it in the future.  Traffic is not that heavy but the vehicles out there are way to fast for my comfort level and there is no shoulder at all.  I am going to look at some other routes this week but this time I think I will scope them out with my car first.  ;D

I do that little finger off carlton lake rd because that is where my parents live.  I stop for some water and maybe a quick pbj before I finish.

Not too shabby my friend, I bet those hills are really helping you train for the 100 miles in northern Virginia.  J/K  Good job getting the miles in even though the heat is killer.
