We're meeting in Calabasas, going over Old Topanga and to PCH and climbing Encinal and back to Westlake. Some years ago I would have considered that an easy ride for a Saturday. The cookie is crumbling.

Where in the SMs were you going? When it's really hot I have driven to the beach near Sycamore canyon. From there you can do all the climbing and descending you want and can turn back to the beach when you get hot. There is also water in places on those fire roads.

I have found if it's 100 in the valleys it will be 100 in the Santa Monicas for the most part.
