Temp forecast: 95 degrees.

Pop up thunderstorms all over the place.

Humidity right at 100%

We want to ride.

Solution, ride like a vampire!

Start at 3 a.m.

look at it this way getting up at AM you will start to get use to the time difference when you take your trip across the pond. Don't know how you guys get use to that humidity I know the 12 years I was in North Carolina I never got use to it.
Bet you guys are really excited about your trip can hardly wait to see the ride reports.

I did 60 hard miles in that stuff on Sat. and it was tough. I would rather ride in the 50s than in the 90s.

Great shots. I think you're even more amazing to be able to get up at that hour. I love the vending machine shot for some reason.

Was it raining in those last couple pictures, or could you see the humidity?

Ain't living in this part of the world grand in summertime?
It was just "Thick Air" along the river bottoms.

I agree that the weather conditions in the summer are challenge around here but we are always up for a challenge. Hence the 3am start, we had a nice 115 mile ride and were done well before noon. There was very little traffic, empty MUTs and we beat the worst of the heat. OTOH We got all the humidity, I was soaking wet most of the way.

With the time difference we were probably getting out of bed as you were getting ready to go to bed.

Of course you loved the vending machine shot-it is the only one of the report that I took! :blush2:

I was wondering about this. What's the difference? I'm too lazy to google it :). All I know is my arms are tan from yesterday and my body is snow white under my jersey. I love summer!

Although I am not all that convinced that the jerseys we are wearing now are all that high in SPF and I may track some down from Australia. They do block quite a bit of sun but my arms do seem to be getting darker-of course we do often ride all day long.......
