That Was Hot, Hot, Hot!


Sunday’s ride … We started our ride on the American River Parkway and rode up to Folsom, then up to Auburn and back to Sacramento. We got a late start (bad idea when the forecast is for 100+ degree heat). Normally the heat doesn’t get to me too much, but by the end of this ride I was pretty much whipped. Almost 70 miles total, which doesn’t seem like that much on paper, so to speak, but … slogging up that hill to Auburn in the brutal sun … yeah. Whipped. Let’s just say I got a little cranky (no pun intended!) by the time I got to the top of the hill.

The perfect mid-ride, 100+ degree weather snack.

The perfect mid-ride, 100+ degree weather snack. I was back to my cheery self in no time!

I drank about 10 bottles of water on this ride. It was hot, hot, hot! Thank goodness for insulated water bottles.

Still smiling, but even my sunscreen was melting!

Have a great day – here’s hoping you get a nice ride in today!
