Yeah, it's not bad here the past couple days, nice a cool breezes. I'm moving to Los Angeles area next year and Its going to be a huge difference in weather, year round that is...

I just drink lots of water. If I stop a lot I just get hotter than when I'am riding.

You have a PM by the way. :thumbsup:

I chose not to ride last weekend because of the heat.

So instead of sweating my butt off riding, I talked myself into sealing my aggregate driveway, porch, and sidewalk. Then, after I about passed out from heat exhaustion, I power washed my fence and resealed the wood.

Even though I got a couple things done that needed to be done. This weekend I'm going riding, I could care less what the temp is. If I'm going to be outside sweating, I'm at least going to have my riding gear on. :thumbsup:

We ride all the time between 100 and 108F in the desert. It is just fine as long as you keep moving. The worst part is after about 2 hours of riding your feet are melting in your riding boots.

Just be smart, drink lots of water BEFORE you ride and you will be fine.

I thought it was hot and humid in NC...then i went to the Desert....NC is nice now it would be 120 at night plus almost 90% or so humidity its was crap then during the day...and i work on the flight line (run way taxiway area) and it would be more than just hot i had a tempature gauge with me and it stopped at 140 out there.....i am betting it was 150 around the Asfault...... :thumbsup: .......and we work 14 hour days.......its really about just being in shape/being used to the weather.....and being well hydrated :ride:
