Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I forget that summer goes by so quickly up there. Labor Day is just a few weeks away. The first cold night, in southeast Ohio.
Here, on the other hand, we're halfway through the hot season.

Both from poor families. They were helped along with scholarships from the International Women's Club, with which my wife is affiliated

San Mateo South to Portola Valley. Currently 78 here in San Mateo. It's still almost 90 in PV, at 7 PM. SF and the coast are cooler, but they always are.

if the estate has substantial assets do the work needed. If not, walk away. Have you read the detailed instructions for the form? Does it have detailed instructions?
Good luck.

we're at the beginning of the indian summer, the traditionally warmest time of year here, peaking sometime in september. it will vary from 50s right at the coast to 90+ inland or in sheltered areas leeward of hills or mountains. today was 90-100 in non-coastal areas. the forecast was for 97 at the junction point (fairfax, ca) for my most favorite northerly rides, so i stuck to loops much closer to home and i doubt it exceeded 70 while i was riding, 8-12.

i absolutely cannot function on a bicycle >80 degrees, my odds of survival would be better posting about di2 or carbon in the c+v forum.
I tried to roll out early, but I'm kind of a slave to regularity, if you catch my drift. I ended up rolling out at a little after 9:30. It got warmer as I headed South, but then it didn't get a hell of a lot better on the way North. I had a bit of relief the last mile of Canada, then the little jog on 92 to 35.

About 10 years ago I learned a trick for hot days - make sure you have a bottle of water for the last half of the ride, and just stick the nozzle in a helmet vent at the top, and squeeze. Then I pour some on my shoulders and my back. It helps a lot when the temps are in the mid-90s and sweat just evaporates so fast it doesn't cool much, and/or maybe I'm not sweating much.

Since it's going to get this hot a number of times before November, I figured riding in the heat would help me acclimate, particularly if I didn't do something stupid like going too fast. As it is, I MAY have gone too far, but when you ride out-and-backs, you have to decide on a shorter ride BEFORE you hit halfway. Once I got to Arastradero Rd, I didn't have much flexibility on the return trip, because I needed to hit the water stops.

I think, though, that I need to carry some hydration mix with me, so I'm not just drinking plain water the last half of the ride.

Spoken like a boomer. I approve.

The Velo Vol generation won’t do that. They just expect others to do the work for them.

About 10-15 years ago, I went out on a ride on a day that wasn't even this warm, but I was not in anything like as good shape. I ended up 4 miles from home, unable to cool down, when a nice young woman took pity on me. She said, "Do you need some water?" I said, "Yes! Please! Pour it on my back and my neck!" I think she thought I was nuts, but really, it's amazing how well that worked. I'd already made the Call Of Shame, but I could have actually made it home after that. Now I do the trick I describes above and it works great, but I do have to hit all the water stops on the way.

Hardly.

I'm told there's maybe a French injun somewhere in my wood pile. I want one zillion bucks to relieve me of pain I now feel from this travesty!.

A hot, dry headwind will suck the moisture right out of you. For the baking in an oven feeling there's nothing like climbing with a slight tailwind.
