A week ago, I was camping and hiking in the snow and snowfields of the Cascades and was really happy that I had brought my long underwear, winter hat and gloves and my 3 season sleeping bag. Today, I felt like I was on the verge of heat stroke within the first few miles. It was about 90 degrees at the start and at the finish, JOK got a notification that he (we) shouldn’t have ridden due to the heat index. Even time in my hot tub (with the heat turned off so the temperature was a delicious 75 degrees) didn’t cool me down that much.

Small turnout today and tonight. No PRs but a great victory by Andy who seems fully recovered from last year’s crash. Madeline was “taking it easy” in preparation for a grueling Sea to Summit Tri this weekend but still managed a great time.

Here is a link to the series so far:
