Bicho from Chicago on 6/12/2021 10:46:01 AM:
Hi all! I'm riding the KT from July 1 to the 8 (give or take a day or two). I know it's going to be hot and humid--I bike in Chicago all summer so I know to drink plenty of water, bring electrolytes, and I have the right clothes for humid heat. I'm assuming there is going to be a lot of mosquitos too, right?
My main question though, is whether the the ride (Machens to Clinton) is in the shade (as in covered by trees) or directly under the sun? The plan is to start every day as early as possible to avoid the worst part of the heat.
Thanks, and happy riding everybody!
