I leave next week on my tour... the first 600 miles will be MO - Kansas. No shade. Right now it's 106 degrees with 71% humidity. When you walk outside you can barely breathe.
This got me thinking... if you were in the middle of a tour (or about to start one). Would you rest in this type of weather and let it pass? Or move on?
Trust me, if it's 106 degrees on the day I am supposed to leave. I will be pushing the tour back a week or two.
