It was supposed to be almost 100°F tonight but it didn't get that hot. It's definitely hot and dry though and it feels like a desert. I brought two bottles of ice Cytomax but didn't get the freezing time quite right... the Polar bottle was still pretty cool by the end though.
Started up at 5:32 after about a 20 minute ride to the Gate. Figured JB and Adam would be right behind me. The Diablo Cyclists are leaving later now, so most of them passed me around the Lower Ranch. The heat wasn't that bad but my eyes get really dry in weather like this... I think I'm going to have to start carrying drops with me.
