[RC] Heat rules... - Maryanne Gabbani

When we have above 90 we usually have about a 30% humidity.  I did the calculations to work out the heat index for our area and that was what works here.  That's 90 in the shade, by the way. Around here the difference between sun and shade is between 5 and 10 degrees depending on the wind. We might finish a ride with high temps but we start with lower ones or we make sure that we are finishing with lowering temps. And we sure as hell don't gallop.
