I'm guessing that temperatures are in the low 80s right now, so I'm working up a bit of a sweat.

I still have the strong wind behind me, so I'm pedalling heartily in my second chain-ring as if I'm not heading uphill at all; usually I've climbed this in my lower chain-ring.

It hasn't helped that I didn't drink enough water during the earlier part of the day.
