Though these cooler temps are nice, experts say it's not the best weather to train for the Hotter 'N Hell Hundred.

The best way to train for the 100 mile ride is to ride in the heat, instead of trying to beat it.

"Don't go out and ride first thing in the morning before the sun comes up, don't by lights at the bike shop so you can ride after sunset things like that," said the bike trainer, "Biken' Mike."

And if cool temperatures for some reason continue, experts say you can always add more layers when you ride to raise your temperature, so when those triple digits come you'll be ready to ride.
