- Is it too hot to ride?
I live in Dubai so ride in the United Arab Emirates (Dubai is one of seven Emirates) and Oman. The photo from this morning is close to the top of Jebel Al Jais which is the UAE’s highest peak at 1930m. A big climb but the descent was sweet.
One of the many problems with the heat at this time of year is that unless you’re over 1000m altitude camping is not an option as it is far too hot.Posted 8 years agodevsMember
It’s 25 here in Moray at the moment. Made 30.5 yesterday. Imagine how we feel! We’re just not used to it. It’s not that long ago I was riding in temps of -14. It was 26 when I went for a ride last night. Very sweaty but lovely. If we can do it here in teh artic circle you need to MTFU!! I do pity the 10 under the benners though if it is as warm as it is here.Posted 8 years agoshinyMember
Usually around 38C here by 10.00am and then stays same till very late at night. Humidity of 80+ brings on a gentle sweat too…
That’s Malaysia for you…
Off on a 40k jungle ride tomorrow with about 300+ others.
Nice and very hot but never too hot to ride…

amosridl – Not near Al Ain, I was riding on Jebel Al Jais in the most Northern Emirate – Ras Al Khaimah. Al Jais is the highest mountain in the UAE at just over 1,900m (Ben Nevis is 1,344m). You’ll never guess what they’re doing to it…
…yes that’s right building a tourist resort on the top. At the moment they’ve got as far as building a track to the top but given the size of the road at the bottom it’s going to be dual carrige-way to the top soon. Such a shame.
I’ve ridden up Jabel Hafeet, crazy fast coming down.Posted 8 years ago
