    Wish me luck, 600 k in a heatwave.

    Winter is long in Norway and it has been a pretty cold May this year. Suddenly summer is here and today there was a record temperature for this time of year of 30.3 centigrades. Tomorrow morning at six o'clock the 600 k brevet for PBP starts. I usually need some time to get used to the heat so I had a really bad day at work today (aches and pains everywhere), and I am a bit worried about cycling in this heat for a full day and more.
    The upside of a high pressure is that there will little or no wind.
    I'll bring my Visacard so if it goes all bad I will get a room somewhere tomorrow night.

    good luck ... I'm going to get some sleep now for my own 600k, which starts in 8 hours. Temperature's supposed to be ok, but there's supposed to be a 60% chance of rain which, as Kent Peterson puts it, usually means that 60% of the route will be covered in rain.

    Good luck! I had a similar experience as you ... a cold winter and spring ... and then 30 degrees on my 400K!! Take it easy, drink lots, consume salt, and don't forget the sunscreen.
