    I averaged 17.2 riding in a blast furnace

    No, really. It was 102 when I left, and still 99 at sunset when I got done after 23 miles. Just glad I didn't have a stroke. Tomorrow when I average 30, you'll need to send an ambulance.

    I often ride around sunset when it's 95-100, I like it. Much nicer when the sun is at a low angle and not baking your brain like it would be earlier in the day.

    I'm not as fast as you are at night, I tend to take it easier on those rides.
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    It felt cool today, even though it was warm, dew point in the low 70's. I must be getting acclimated, as I felt I had my normal oomph. It did get warm when I turned with the wind and started going uphill, then it felt just plain hot.

    Living in a place where it is 34 celcius every day (94 in the old scale), we just go out early and make sure you are home by 11am. 30kph average is what you aim for (in the slow group), while the quick is doing 36
