So just got back from riding east setauket. Holy hell!!! Honestly heat wasn't problem as long as ya stopped to take a break every now and again we were fine. It was the mosquitos that were making the ride horrible. After a while You couldn't stop because of EM, they were swarming us all over our faces. which after getting through all of wild laurel and the wall I was done felt way overheated had to bail. Besides that I lost 6 lbs today.
