I got on the road shortly after 7AM. It was very humid by that time but the heat hadn’t cranked up yet.
The biggest problem for me in the humidity is the perspiration. Whenever I stop or struggle up a hill, sweat is pouring into my eyes. If I stop somewhere that is air conditioned, I get really cold. I’m soaking wet and the A/C is about enough to give me hypothermia!
Up and down hills all day once again. Pedal really hard. Coast. Repeat.
Lots of trees around here. Some shade…which is good. Very few views…not so good. This was the most expansive view of the day.
Finished pedaling a bit before 1PM. Good timing because got pretty hot the last hour. By 3PM, heat index was 108. Hard to walk across parking lot to Subway.
I’m now less than 2000 miles from Key West. A bit over 4 weeks to go?
Weather for next week is much cooler. Low to mid-80’s. Hope to make some good miles.
