Good way to beat the heat and still ride. I always try to find a creek on along the route to cool off and clean the dust off, not always possible but makes it much more enjoyable.
I thought about this thread as I made the drive today from the Bay Area to Escondido. 2:30 pm as I was heading up and over the hill to get to 5 it read 106 didn't drop below 100 much at all till I neared Santa Clarita I think around 7:30 pm.
partly grew up in escondido... what were ya doing there ?
