Sunday's Ride or I Met The Beast!
Yesterday, I attempted a 62 mile ride and I met a foul beast, named Heat! The temperature was sitting about 87°F or 30°C. The humidity was at 92% and I was fighting a 20 mph headwind. Here are the stats of the attempt. I ran into the Bonk and had to make the “Call of Shame”!

If you look at the heat index, you'll see why I bonked. I hadn't carb loaded correctly and my hydration was probably insufficient. A heat index that high is extremely hazardous. I am not sure of the calculator accuracy, the Engine I used is located at http://ows.public.sembach.af.mil/info/himain.htm and is a military site from the USAF. 111°F(or 43°C) is a danger zone heat index! If you ride in these conditions, be prepared for the conditions. Hydrate properly and keep the body fueled and you can STILL bonk badly!
