Cycling in the Heat
Do you like it hot? Well, depending on where you live you might not have a choice and will need to ride your bike in some extremely hot temperatures for at least part of the year.
We sort of labeled a hot ride as anytime the temperature climbs above 90 degrees and or the Dew point is 65% or greater…but it really comes down to what you’re accustomed to and how well acclimatized you are. If it’s hot to you, then it’s a hot ride.
