Start ride early am. 5-6 is pretty nice.
Triple digits on the way home to get out of the heat quick.

Why is it that cargo is transported by ship while a shipment is transported by car?

.

I work during the day, but usually come home at 5:30pm and get on the bike to go to the gym at 6:00pm to wet my appetite. The ride home at 8:00pm is even better.

But don't worry, soon it will be the end of August and we will be in September, which means the fall season. Wait! I forgot! We live in Arizona, which means that September is still as hot as August.

Oh well, at least there is October to look forward to.

Cool

Suck it up, Put on your gear and ride. Are you going to let a little heat keep you from doing what you love? It's not so bad once you get used to it.

Warm weather gear makes it all possible for me.

Believe it or not, you will get used to high temperatures. My limit is about 105, anything below that and I'm good to go.

I'm with them. All the right gear makes it tolerable to ride. since my bike is my only form of transportation right now, I use it everyday for a 40 mile round trip commute, plus to run errands, and run around town on Saturday and throw in a ride on Sunday.

It's all about planning and preparation.

But I do admit that anything over 105 and I start to get a bit cranky...

I second the motion to suck it up!! I'd rather ride in 110 degrees F than in the freezing freakin cold crap. I've always preferred the life of a lizard to that of a penguin.

two wheels are better than four
