So this is what the Tropics feel like. Dripping dewpoints and true summer heat gave us heat index values close to 100 this weekend. When relative humidity is this high the body cannot easily cool itself through the process of evaporation. Cyclists can quickly be overcome by heat-related illness in condition like this, so hope you've been stayin' cool!
