    Even too hot for the rattlers today

    I rode 52 miles in 100F heat, including climbing up 2 7 percent grades at the midpoint. NOT smart. I think I rode the last 15 miles in the early stages of heat stroke - rapid breathing and heartbeat, but I made it home. I'm OK, it was just a little scary (and stupid on my part). I won't start a ride any later than 8:00 in the morning if its going to be 100 like it was (I started riding at almost 11:00).

    On the plus side, just broke 2,000 miles cycling for the year

    Man, the water at Folsom Lake is LOW!

    I realize the thread would have been MORE interesting had I posted pictures...

    Picture of the water at Folsom Lake and how low it is... me about dead, and one of the 7 percent grade signs... interestingly enough posted on the DOWNHILL part of the trail, and not the uphill. Sadists.

    I went to Chicago Fire Pizza with the GF Friday night and drank 128 oz of fluid - two glasses of iced tea (unsweet) and two glasses of water. And I barely peed afterward.
