    A lot of good Tips have been Posted.
    What would I do?
    I would recommend going with the later time fame.

    What are your thoughts now? As others have said, 'You know what you can do Safely'.

    Stay Healthy and Be Safe. .....

    UPDATE: for next week. Forecast is for 90's. Not really fun riding if you get stuck in traffic. Okay if you are rolling down the road. Long sleeves are recommended so you don't get to sunburned. A mesh variety jacket is viable, but I do not like more than one layer in that temperature range. You will usually see us riding in long sleeve/ hi-vis colors.

    We are just outside of Harrison. Give us a call if you want. Contact me through PM.

    I’d also generously apply a lip balm, and apply it often during your ride.

    Be mindful of the dew point on the days you ride. They have been high enough that we have been under a heat advisory for a week. Dew points in the 70s are dangerous. In north central Kansas, we have a dew point of 75 right now. The ambient air temperature is 95 but feels like 102. Be careful and good luck.
