UGH hot today

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

Forecast is for 96F in the shade down by the river today... might go for a ride tonight after it cools down but this afternoon will just kick back and enjoy cool beverages.

Good stuff, just hope you weren't carrying them in your jersey pockets the whole ride until they melted into a huge raisin-chocolate soup!

Let's not. HTFU was never a cool comment and after its overuse here it most certainly needs to be banned from use.

It's been beautiful here in eastern WI all week, though Lake Michigan moderates the temperatures. Riding along the lake, a person can feel the heat from the west, then a cool blast from the east, back and forth depending on the location. Just beautiful here, wish I still lived here. Love the bike trail, have done 106 miles on it in 3 days/3 riding sessions which is good for me. Fresh asparagus growing wild along the path, ripe apples at the halfway point in Belgium, WI.

Riding the Ozaukee interurban trail, which is fairly nice once you get north of Port. Not many slowdowns. Though hardcore road bikers would probably still prefer the road over any bike path.

I raced today in hot and humid Mississippi weather. 12 mile Morning TT in the low 80's. In the low 90's for the 24 mile afternoon circuit race, heat index of 100-104. It's worse in other places.

Hydrate, use electrolytes, eat properly, etc.
