10 miles up Kelbaker Road out of Baker, I stop for a break at "the big curve," where the road turns almost 90 degrees
I'm already hot and sweaty, after only 10 miles in the sun. It's getting hotter. At 1000 feet above Baker, a slight breeze blows now, not enough yet to cool me, but it's almost refreshing. My sweatband falls off my handlebars, which I'll realize later.
