Wow, we have never had anything close to that temp north of the border.
Try to stay hydrated.

I was out in the sun briefly on a job yesterday and nearly heat-stroked. After that I didn't even bother trying to ride. Today's not looking so good either but I'll probably wait till early evening and give it a shot. Our riding season is too short to miss 2 days in a row from stupid heat.

I have a 3 day weekend(was supposed to be doing a tour but it got cancelled due to the weather and storms in the area) So I'm going to brave it and get as much riding as I can tolerate it Want to meet up later?

Here in Minnesota we have been dealing with heat and lots of high humidity. I leave the house with a bottle of water and stop a lot for some. Go straight for the back roads no stop and go for me.
They say the high humidity comes from the farmer's corn. Do a search on the net
