Spring leads to summer, which drips with hot, hazy, drinkable air that envelops your every pore. Some curse the humidity. I adore it. During one particularly brutally hot spell, a few of us were spinning out our own little century, melting like popsicles on the sidewalk about 65 miles in when we passed by an old Coke machine by a rundown gas station. We fished dollar bills from our pockets and said a few silent prayers. It worked. Fifty cents a can. They were ice cold. We chugged them like Mean Joe Green, giggling like giddy schoolgirls, and felt like the luckiest cyclists to pedal the earth. You don't get moments like that in moderate climates.
