OVERALL COMMUTE RATING:

This rating raises philosophical questions. Extreme heat is bad. High winds are bad. But when combined, is the whole better or worse than the sum of its parts? A windy hot day means you have to exert more energy to go the same speed. But the wind might also cool you down. All of which is to say, you can take this many different directions.

1.5/4. It’s gonna suck regardless. Bring a change of clothes and enjoy your rides!
