    Way too hot there! Our family members down your way have been telling us just how hot it has been. We here in the PNW are having our brand of hot as well, but I will take low 80s over 100s any day! Seems you got in a good ride early in the day.

    As always – good pictures Bill. A bit hot but I assume low humidity otherwise you couldn’t ride.
