African heat is suffocating Germany these days. Not (quite) too hot to ride – as long as it is a route with as few traffic lights as possible. The bear the intrinsic risk of switching to red when the rider is approaching, forcing a stop that let’s you feel the almost brutal heat. It hits you like a hammer over the head when you come to a standstill.

Yesterday’s ride, e.g., was done at 32.5°C – on average.!

Really feels like riding in Africa.

Make-believe African wildlife in the middle of German desert heat?

The temps even seem to play some tricks on your vision – or wasn’t it a mirage when I thought I saw a zebra grazing in the distance? 😉

In a heat like today, it is highly recommended for EVERY creature to dress accordingly
