It wasn't that hot at 06:00 when I started out. But I did know it was going to be a scorcher that day , so I took it fairly easy, did the 80.7km in 03:05:16, avg speed of 26.1 km/h
And lots of water I take it

How are the predictions looking for today?

Better than yesterday, but still nothing to phone home about :(

There's a 40% chance of light rain and small storms from 14:00

There will be some towering cumulus moving in before that - but we'll have to see if any develop into full on CB's

Just remember the catchment area for the Vaal isn't Joburg, its more so the free state - others can clarify this better than I can though :)

Yeah, that's a nice ride out. I would start at 5:30 am though, and finish while it's still cooler.

:thumbsup:This weekend's cycle ride will definitely be started at about that time. What also made that I cycled back to Sasolburg when it was getting very warm, was that I stopped for a coffee at Mugg&Bean. I just had a craving for a coffee, I did not have one before I started cycling.

I see the prediction for this Sunday is that is going to be just as hot!

wtf is it with lycrans and their need to take up an entire mugg and bean on a saturday morning, as if it's a lane on a narrow rural road?

I can assure you I was the ONLY one at M&B that early on a Sunday morning in Parys!:ROFL: I think they just opened up, I was there at about 07:30.

This last Sunday we started at 5:30. By the time we was done at 9 it was already brutal. (Although we did 120km so it might have been the pace as well as the heat...)
