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.

You know better than to put those things in direct sunlight!

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!!!!

Yep... now you understand why winter is so popular in Queensland!

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.

Roadbuzz -

I used to live in No. Va. and dreaded the summers there. I used to get on the road at 5:30-6:00AM get try to get back by noon, at the latest. The rest of the year is nice, 'tho.
