As described by @okonomiyaki , we had a nice ride up FGZ on Saturday followed by coffee over at Wuzhishan. It was a bit foggy in the morning, but very helpful since the temp was pretty high at around 9-10AM when we descended.
I followed up the coffee ride with my first “race” ride after my injury. I rode along with the Kuolai Challenge contestants and I won’t lie…I really do miss the environment. Despite the race route being around 70km with 1800m elevation, the hardest part was riding home from Shenkeng to Song Shan. My Garmin was telling me it was 44C, but I later got home and Garmi Connect said the highest my Garmin detected was 55C.
Sure was hot.
