Just when I thought I couldn’t get any cooler, I rode over the tropic of Capricorn line. South this point, the sun never reaches 90° to the earth at any time of the year. Between the tropic lines (Cancer and Capricorn), the sun gets directly overhead at some point.
It means that the lovely 30+ temperatures will slowly give way to more temperate climbs. The bags will get easier to pack as the thermals come out. I rode over some mountains today and got the first prickles of freshness in the cooler air. It’s coming alright!
