What are these things you speak of?

sorry... flashbacks to living in Colorado!

Yeah this is my commute so I feel your pain. With having to do trips for work today I didn't feel like dripping sweat all over everyone when I got to the other offices and caged it

Monday was hot. It cooled down by the time I passed a temp sign at 97. I rode from Sun City to Galveston and just stopped to smell the roses or whatever flower those were more.
Now what I thought sucked on that 251 mile cruise was the wind. F'ing brutal. I should get a windshield to take pressure off my hands.
Anyway, if you have decent gear and drink enough water you will be fine.

Is it hot?

Sure. Is it too hot to ride? Only for a .

Getting all hot and sweaty and having to guzzle water a couple liters at a time is part of the FUN


You know - kinda like when you have ? (assuming you're actually doing it right)

Rode the M109 in today, it was hot as on the way home, but still better than cagin it. Watching people in their air-conditioned vehicles, jealous because they were stuck in traffic and I wasn't... Priceless
