Currently the west is experiencing a significant heat wave. I live outside of Phoenix where it was touching 120+ and is currently 111 as I write this note. I was on a week long ride, returning home Friday, riding a loop in the hottest week in the west going through SLC and stopped to check out the fair grounds. Looks pretty nice, it was hot but I survived. It looks like temps will be in the mid to high 90's for the rally, BUT, there is a 30 degree drop at night. For those riding in, just beware of the effects heat has on you. Drink plenty of water, and if it gets too hot for you, stop for a few hours and resume riding as the sun sets and temps drop. Be prepared and forewarned and you will enjoy your stay
