Watch out of those cracks in the pavement. Don't let the black-filler-gunk fool you thinking you can ride into/on them. Get a wheel caught in one of them canyon like cracks in the road and you're done for. May as well be cookie dough filling the cracks . . . . mmmmm, cookie dough.
In the ten km's from my house to the start of a Gat loop I drank one full bottle in about 21 minutes.
By the time I got to the top of Pink (another 6-7 km further up the road) my bottle was empty again. With only one bottle left for another 30-35 kms I made the decision to pull the plug and head for home. Getting heat stroke or heat exhaustion is totally not worth a loop of the park.
Stopped in the shade and snacked on a few wild raspberries on the way home.
Heat wave still in affect and no signs of letting up. Hopefully the Thursday night ride will be cooler.
