I awoke at 6:00 and heat was already in the air. I took some time to relax in the churchyard and talked to the groundskeeper before getting on my way before 7:00. I rode 2 miles and then popped into a restaurant to use the internet and catch up on social media for about an hour before really hitting the road. A huge part of me wanted to get on the road early to beat the heat but I just had things I needed to do online. When I left there I had just under a half gallon of water left from the fire hydrant in the Bronx and temperatures were near 90 degrees already at 9:00.
