The sharp observer will note it is getting hot. When one is on a bike, the reflection of the heat off the pavement can add at least five degrees to the “feels like” temperature. 

So leave on your ride early and come back early.  Be sure to take plenty of water and think about where you can stop to get more or just take a breather in the shade.

Here are a few pictures from just a few weeks ago, when it was cooler and greener.
