Return of The Heat

Those of us living in the desert wastes just got to enjoy a final, glorious weekend with perfect temperatures.  Of course, now we're hosed.

Yes, the Heat* is returning to the desert.  While those of you in colder climates are celebrating the thawing of lakes and such, please toast the poor souls here in the southwest doing our parts to keep you guys warm.

As for me, I'm going to have to admit that it's actually time to start wearing my summer gear.  It looks like we're going to hit three digit temperatures next weekend - which says to me that next weekend will be an excellent weekend to get out of town. 

Anyway, to make the best of the upcoming Heat, here's a post from last summer for your enjoyment:  Five Tips For Riding In Oppressive Summer Heat.

* The summer weather in Phoenix is a proper noun

We had snow Saturday night. Of course I envy you.

Wow, and we were happy to hit 67˚F on our ride on Saturday.

It was a heat wave for us this time of year. Heck the rain stopped for two days, that in itself was a treat.

Seems to never be a happy medium for riding - either too hot (Phoenix) or too cold (Ottawa). But I guess we can at least add layers.

Trobairitz - sounds awesome!

Canajun - Aw heck, it's always good riding weather.

So glad I live near the mountains. If it gets too hot in the city, I run up the pass into the mountains. We are still in winter. One day in the 80's and the next day it's snowing.
