Sat, Jul 18

Today I made a mistake by picking the Middle East Bay as cycling venue. I wanted to ride Mount Diablo today, so I left home at a comfortable 72F at about 9:30am; about 15 minutes later, across the ridge in the San Ramon Valley, the reading was mid-80's. At the start of the ride, 87F. Nevertheless I struggled my way up to Juniper before turning around, hoping to cool down a bit; it worked until turning the corner at South Gate, when it started feeling like a giant hairdryer blowing hot air. 102F by the time I finished; tomorrow: cycling closer to the coast.
