For real! With all the humidity on top of that, I've been sweating like crazy. One ride I lost about 2-3 lbs in just water weight. I try to carry enough water and refill along the ride. Personally, I like riding in the rain better .

I actually really enjoyed the hot days in Winnipeg when I lived there. I always wondered why so many people complained about them ... especially after going through the winters there!

But from what I've heard there have been about 2 weeks in September that were decent. The rest of the summer was pretty cool and rainy. If that's the case, there should be no complaining at all about a little heat.
