114 degrees that is! On SR-39 at 12:30 at ~2k ft of elevation. Check out pics below.
Started in Glendora at 8am at 95F, climbed Mt. Baldy Road in 90-100F heat for most of the way, took GRR to East Fork to 39 and climbed to the point where the road was closed (~3200'). Time from Mt Baldy/Mills to the lifts was ~1:30. Drank 100oz of gatorade, 40oz of water, 24oz of soda and still lost 5lbs on the ride. Total stats were ~9k ft and 75 miles. I couldn't ride to Dawson's Saddle unfortunately. I would have died. I kept hoping the heat would dissipate as I climbed 39 but it stayed stubbornly at 105-115F. No shade. Bah! BTW, it did not appear easy to jump over the "Closed" barrier at ~3200 ft. What's the strategy to get over it?
