We started again early in the morning as we are in a heat wave since two days and for the next weeks. This means that from 11am until 9pm it is more than 30 degrees Celsius and for several hours in the afternoon it is around 40 C! Today we have measured the temperature on the surface of the bicycle 47 C. Until the afternoon we rode the first 100 km only downhill along the river in the cool morning. But as there was no motel with AC (Air Conditioner) we decided to continue to ride on in the oven. It was only possible as there was a river just next to the street an we jumped in ever 7 km to cool down. With cool drinks and Ice Cream we managed to do another 50 km along the river where we stayed on a KoA Campground in Kamiah.
