Riding a bicycle on hot days?

Postby Shine_Spirit » Fri May 26, 2017 10:30 am

Do you like it?

I'm so addicted to riding a bike that it doesn't matter how the day is at the moment that I decide to get on the bike and meet some new places. I like to feel the adenine and time is the last thing that interests me. :D

Am I crazy anough to think like that? :roll: :lol:

Well, I don't think you are crazy, because if you are enjoying it then its all depend on you.

Here it is almost around 45 degree in day time. Lol, I can't dare to go outside on bicycle with that. Even at evening hot waves are keep moving around, so no chance to go out in hot for me.I hate summer.

I personally don't enjoy the heat much as I get light headed I much rather go riding when it's cloudy. When it's hot I like to go swimming instead unless it's at a park I used to go to where there are big trees all over the place and there's a lot of shade. This doesn't mean I think your crazy it all depends in personal needs and wants.

Oh my God...This is something that I dread and never prefer to do . Hot and humid weather like what we are having during these days in my country is really intolerable for me and any physical exercise or activity associated with it is completely unwelcome.

Yeah me too. I don't mind about the climate whether it is hot or cold, if I decide to ride the bike then I will ride my bike. The feeling is simply awesome.

Sorry, but riding a bike in hot sunny day is not my idea exactly although I won't mind it if we were doing it for a particular purpose. Maybe you should know the kind of sun we have in places where I live. It's really so very hot back in India especially during peak summer time in May-June when the temperature in my area touches above 40 degree C and you face killer heat wave. Australian summer is as bad as Indian summer in this area minus the heat wave.

Oh no that is not my thing, not just riding a bike I do not like carrying out any sporting activity in the sun. The heat from the sun will go some way to reduce my performance ability, one way I'll be contending with the excruciating heat from the sun. I always do riding and other activities when the sun is gradually going down in the evening or morning, I am better at these time.

When I was younger, I didn't mind the heat although not really in biking but in basketball on the streets. We play even it is noontime and the sun is searing hot. But with my age, I guess biking under the hot sun is impractical and you are just abusing your skin. There are articles I had read that too much sun can cause skin cancer. That's a good warning for all of us.

I dont really mind riding a bicycle in hot weather as long as it is not too hot because if it is too hot there are a lot of issues that will happen when you do that. Most issues come with dehydration and having a headache at the end of the day depending if you tide really hard or not. Another is keeping hydrated while you ride in the hot weather and dont be bumping or tiring put from you ride. Other than that I am fine with riding in hot weather in the day.
