Well, kilometer version (62 miles). I rode it yesterday, solo. Temp 88 degrees and steady 15-20 mph tradewinds in my face all the way out to the turnaround ... and then partways back, as well (how does that happen?).

I have switched from water to Gatorade for my rides (supplemented by a couple of Gu gels), and it has helped a lot. I forgot how much fluid and salt you can lose while riding four hours in the heat.
