hot enough that you out to put ice in your camelback and keep an eye on each other for heat stress and heat stroke: can't cool down, nausia, dizzyness, and the biggie they/you have stopped sweating.

its 80* at 5:30am at 2900' in the Santa Cruz Mts this Sunday AM..be safe out there

stoopid hot in San Jose

I think Buzz Cut's message was sound.

Keep an eye out on your fellow outdoor adventurer today.

Heat exhaustion can cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, chills (shivering in 100 degree +) dehydration.

Heat stroke looks like reddish skin, absence of sweating, confusion, rapid heart rate, confusion, difficulty breathing.

Heat exhaustion can be treated by stopping, hydrating, cooling, but should be monitored.

Heat Stroke is a life threatening condition and should involve EMS

I'll be on the LG creek trail heading up to Lexington in the next hour or so on my cross bike. If someone finds my dumbass on the side of the trail, roll me into the creek:thumbsup:

Crazy to ride now - it's 100 everywhere (unless you are at the coast I suppose).

Tomorrow morning though... well that's another story. Skeggs, Purisima, maybe both. Hmm. Decisions, decisions. Dry trails, empty parking lots, and a nice sea breeze starting to kick in. That's my kinda day...

ended up treating 11 people for heat exhaustion

Seriously it was Ice packs on the Jugular veins to cool the core, ice cold Gatoraide G2 to rehydrate, and replace electrolytes. Almost called for an Ambulance for one lady who was on the verge of heat stoke, her body was compensating and on the verge of going the wrong way, took a while to get her vitals back to normal

Did a road ride today with 6 others. We started at 7:30 and it was already near 80 degrees. We rode from Clayton to Mt. Diablo summit which wasn't too hot at the time, however, I swear it was 110 degrees at about 1pm when we were coming up the Livermore side of Morgan Territory Road. 4 of us were at the top and after about 15 min, of waiting for the last three, we were concerned for their health and one guy decided to fill up 4 bottles and ride back to the others to see if they needed help. Thankfully, they were only about 5 more min back and doing ok. They just had to bring thier pace down to keep from overheating. That is the last time I do that ride in heat, it was painfull.

I took my SS out to Demo. It was rough. I was feeling all dizzy on the climb and got a little sick about 200 feet from the gate. Stupid. I was close and didn't want to lose momentum. I took a long rest, felt fine, and then hit the descent. A few hours later I had a pounding headache. - dehydration?
