    That which doesn't kill you, reminds us that there are limits to one's foolishness.

    ...could've been a lot more exciting had you flirted with death while pulling it off.

    I'd rather ride 100 miles in 60 degree weather, but if 100 degrees is what you got, goodonya for getting out there. In any case, riding in those conditions beats the stuffing out of running in 90 degree weather.
    Only mad dogs, Englishmen, and triathletes go out in the mid day sun.

    Yes, you experience adaptation. If you hydrate and recover appropriately, you get both the training adapatation, as well as adapting/adjusting/whatever to the heat so it will be easier next time. We do rides like that every weekend here in Phoenix, but likely with a drier heat than you experienced.

    That which doesn't kill you could still be a tactical mistake. In 100 degree weather I'd personally opt for a terrace and and a pitcher of sangria so I could watch other cyclists going by (preferably with a really high average speed). Evenings are cooler and better suited for 60km adventures.

    That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and that which does kill you wasn't really a very good idea anyway.
