Riding from the Outer Banks up towards the general Baltimore area was a real hard task today.  The north east of the US is in the midst of a record breaking heatwave at the moment and we are trying to ride bikes in it. 

We saw 38C today with high humidity and had to stop every hour or so to try to cool off and re-hydrate.  I rode all day without my jacket on, wearing just a base layer and a buff soaked in cold water round my neck but even at that I was still getting very hot.

As a result we only did 260miles today and are now at Easton, Maryland from where we will ride the 60 miles to Baltimore in the morning to drop the bikes off for shipping.
