Nice ride today. A little on the hot side.

Managed to get in 87 miles even though it was almost 100% humidity, with fog and haze all day.

The weather report...

... Record high temperature set at Providence...

A new record high temperature for Saturday August 13 was established
at 129 PM when the Mercury soared to 100 degrees at T.F. Green
Airport. The old record of 98 was set in 1944. This is the first
time the temperature reached 100 degrees in Providence since August
9 of 2001.

Same here, record high temperatures all weekend on the northeast coast.
I went for my morning ride then spent the whole day at my gf's place watching movies. It was good to veg out.

ummm, it's been over 100 here for several weeks. It's supposed to be a cool 97 today.

I would guess it might even be worse in NYC than here. The humidity was the worst I've seen all year.

Is there ever fog or high humidity there? I drove through once, it looked like some very nice places to ride nearby. Not much shade though.
