    You are absolutely right. It was a grand day for a ride. 76degrees, no humidity, a breeze from the NW. Absolutely marvelous!

    Yep... Great day! It was 25C when I went out, with no more than 40 per cent humidity, light wind from the West and a clear sky. I got about 60 km of off-road cyclcocross -- including ten very intense hill intervals. Fine day. Couldn't have asked for better.

    Aaah, just your typical day in the S.F. Bay area: 78F max, sunny skies, low humidity, nice breeze (not too windy). Up on Skyline Bld. it was probably 67F at around 1030A when I got there. Did a nice 40mi ride on the new bike just to break it in.

    I know. It doesn't get direct until evening. That pic was taken at 6:30 pm CST. But the heat index here today was 110+. Humidity was stifling. But I rode!!!!

    Yes it was a great day for riding.
    84 degrees when I left the house and only 89 when I got home. A few clouds and light breeses.
    Friday and Saturday were VERY windy -- 15+ mph. Seems it was a headwind when I was going uphill or getting tired.

    Great day for sweating down here! High's near 93 F and humidity around 90-95% with a "feel like" temp near 110 F.

    Yes, I rode and I was drenched at the end!

    Nothing like getting a ride in, and simultaneously being in a Sauna.

    Well, here on planet Mercury, it's been in the 90's (F), temps and relative humidity, every day since who knows when.

    Drink early and often.
