You may think I’m crazy

The question I hear more than anything these days is “You aren’t riding your bike in this heat, are you?”

With temps in the triple digits and a heat advisory looming, there is only one answer for me–”Why yes I am.”

As much I try not to and complain about it, I still find myself on the saddle, enjoying the ride day after day. Safely and adorably (ok, maybe safely and sweaty…)!

How are you making it in the heat?  It seems NY’ers are cooking naked.

Bike love to you all!

    It’s amazing at how riding in the summer extends beyond cycling as well. I find the comfortable AC temperature has gone up as well.

    I can’t wait to get back to my bike. I am currently in England, where everyone rides a bike (ok, small exaggeration!). I miss it. And yeah, heat: I live in DFW where it is indeed triple digits. Hat, water, moderation… but I ride to My U everyday… and back.

    I mean…I LOVE riding my bike in the heat! Because, with the breeze created by riding, it’s wayyyy better than walking, and it’s even wayyyy better than the five minutes spent in your car before the air conditioning kicks into gear. I think it’s brilliant to ride in the humidity. And that’s my story.

    Water, water and water. I do love the heat, but I find I back off on the intensity and just try to enjoy it.

    You’re a star! It’s been so hot here these past few days that I’m sure AL is stifling. Tis true that it’s not so bad when you’re moving, but when you stop . . . ugh, suddenly drenched! Leaving early is key; I could just stop trolling the web all night long and get to bed on time, it might be a little easier. :)
