My body performs most efficiently in dry, 65-75 degree climate.
In heat and humidity my body ceases to function. I always avoid those regions at all cost.

Out on the road my thumb is my trusty pressure gauge. I trust it and keeps me rolling... Works every time.
I don't care for gauges except on my floor pump at home.

I did the ride back in 2006 on my fixed gear, don't remember which course, but it was at least 100 miles. I made it, but that steep climb towards the end of the ride was a killer.
