259 Electric personality?

Yesterday I went for an easy recovery ride. 30 minutes on the bike path. My heart rate monitor keeps showing these bizarre spikes. I have done some research on the web and the best I can come up with is that it is related to our dry climate and static from my jersey. Funny thing was that yesterday I was wearing a cotton tee shirt. I know that I was not going hard. I was trying to keep the HR below 150 and I get spikes for no reason. I also get them on Highland Drive by the prison/Bluffdale exit. I think it is aliens or maybe the little black helicopters flying over the Point of the Mountain.

That HR monitor thing happens to me when I don't wear a snug base layer. I've heard that when an outer layer flops in the wind directly on a HRM strap it can fool the HRM. Don't know if thats true or not but it's plausable.
