The temps are creeping upwards toward 100 this week. Brutal heat wave is about to take hold. I can look out my office window right now and see nothing but haze. The humidity down here in Charlotte is tangible. Take a deep breath outside here, and you run the risk of chipping a tooth.
Hardly weather condusive to cycling. On days like this, you either ride before 6am, after 8pm, or not at all.
Heat like this can do funny (dangerous) things to a cyclist. Heat stroke is real and not something you want when you are pedaling at 15 to 25 mph. No thanks.
I got out yesterday after work to mow the lawn. Glad I did it yesterday. The humidity was low. Today it will be high. Heat indexes will be over 100 today.
Let’s hope this all clears by July 29-30
