I didn't get started until about 12:30 pm and it was VERY hot. I drove to White to do my usual 45 mile training ride. I varied the route because I had to double back to my truck and get some money (which I forgot) in case I needed to stop for water.
The temperature jumped over 100 degrees but I felt pretty good until the last few miles when I began to wilt. About 2o miles into the ride I helped another rider who had a mechanical problem. Luckily I had my toolkit and could help.
I am getting stronger and really enjoyed this ride.
