- Is it too hot to ride?
Too hot to ride! Pah, i pushed a 45lb downhill bike up easteridge yesterday in full armour in 20+C heat and 70% plus humidity according to the local weather station.
People in this country, “its too cold to ride, its too wet to ride, its too hot to ride”. Then complain they dont get to ride enough.
Get on your bike take plenty of water and sunscreen and MAN THE F*CK UP!Posted 8 years agofun hoverMember
23 degrees pah!
I endured 47 degrees on a 3 hour road ride at the weekend
(Reverse cement factory loop, apparently, around Muscat Oman)
6 litres of water drunk plus another load poured directly over my head.
Not exactly pleasant I grant you and at the time I was thinking why am I doing this?
Now I know – so I can post on singletrackworld.Posted 8 years agodevsMember
Big up respeck for cycling in Muscat. Apart from the ridiculous heat the drivers are a complete mare. Not as bad as the Saudis and Kuwaitis though. I never cycled during my desert visits but the hottest I was in was a wee visit to the Basra road in the early 90s when it was 52 deg. Hottest I’ve cycled in was mid 30s in Belize where it wasn’t so much the heat but the 100pc humidity that knacked you.Posted 8 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Fantastic solo 4.5 hour bimble on Exmoor yesterday – loads of sun, dusty trails, everyone smiling, burbling streams, dragonflies and gorgeous dappled woods too. 3 litres and quite dehydrated. Pushed half of Selworthy Beacon back to the car to avoid fainting.
Now that’s what I call summer riding!Posted 8 years ago
