I'm pounding the miles on my road bike (bicycle) in 100 degree Texas heat getting ready for RAGBRAI which starts in 2 weeks and the Hotter 'n Hell which is next month.

Road cycling that past year in as many events as I could find in the San Antonio area is a big part of the credit I give to being in decent shape to do the Ruta.

If you (speaking to the readership here) are cruising through your 40s and certainly if you are in your 50s and you are not in shape DO NOT attempt the Ruta or it will eat you for lunch! This is NOT a lazy tour through the Sierra!

Living in Texas, heat doesn't bother me anymore, nor does humidity. Much.

The timing isn't my choice, the full run to Cabo is with Tim Morton and his bunch, and they do that run twice a year. I was going to do a paved Baja "recon", but with three big dirt rides under my belt I decided to complete a quad and do Baja all off-road.
