With temperatures soaring to above 30 degrees and having ridden 70 kilometers, it was a welcome relief to stand underneath the fine mist provided by a roadside fruit stand. We had a debate about the purpose of the spray - was it to cool customers or cool the fruits and vegetables? Since we were using it to cool ourselves, I agrued that it was there for the customers. Roy and Richard argued that it was there to protect the produce. When I examine the photo now, I have to agree with my cycling compadres that the purpose of the cooling mist is to keep the produce fresh in the high heat. Whatchoo think?
