On my way from NY to Sturgis and took the southern route to visit a friend in Mesa. He had warned me that it was going to be HOT and I should consider riding through the night. I thought I could handle it, my mistake. Blast furnace is a good description, I wanted to ride fast to get it over with over but the heat blast over 45 mph simply took my breath away. Result was major dehydration and burnt ear lobes from the hot air blast. This was, by far, on of my most stupid bike events...... and a dangerous learning experience.
