Coming in Hot

Although none of the Bamboo riders may have felt it at the time, looking back at our start in China the days actually seem cool now. As we have worked our way south through Vietnam, Lao, Cambodia and now Thailand the days have become hotter and more humid. Where up north riders often took their time during the ride, many have now adapted their strategy to push hard early in the morning in hopes of avoiding the worst of the days heat and sun.
