Heat stroke is a real danger in weather like this. No need to suffer a heat stroke only because you feel taking the bus home makes you look like a wussy.
why didn't i think of this?!

I'm still out there rolling 25 miles a day. I could take the heat but the combination of sweat and sunscreen burns my eyes and gets annoying. Thank god for sweatbands.
Not me. The afterlife will find me and in a much hotter place.
For me it's not the heat that is the problem but the insane mugginess. I have asthma and days like today make it really hard to breathe, especially while exerting myself. The same goes for insanely low dry temps.
We've mixed our riding up this week. My longest trips with the guys way north for camp have been in our bus. Other trips like shopping and goofing to the park have been on our bike. My small guys and I were out today and they were really flagging just being outside for under an hour at the farmer's market. And they are used to being out in every kind of weather. It's much easier to keep them safe in the bitter cold. The heat was blazing up off the pavement as much as just out in the air.
If I were commuting on my own I might be more brave but the heat has been pretty brutal. If we didn't need to go to camp I'd probably stick close to home these two days.
Given the tendancy to subconsciously take one's avatar as the image of the person posting and imagine that image saying the words in the post, Serge you are kind of freaking me out
