Nice ride this morning - No sweat till later
On 25 - 7, George wrote about cycling in heat, and not sweating,
I had a nice ride this morning, about 50km in about a couple of hours. Really loving my new (1 year old!) bike, and the weather was warm (well, it's Bahrain) but not too windy. I was out from about 6.30 am, back at about 8.30. Saw gazelles, camels, and was pushing along and feeling fine.
But not a drop of sweat apparent. Dry shirt. Glugging down the water, buying new bottles of cold every 10 km or so, but nothing like a drop off the brow or the forearms
But coming inside after the couple of hours - I was just a fountain. Yo, sweaty was me. Drip drop splash.
Just goes to show - above a certain temperature, it looks like you're not sweating, but it's just because it evaporates as soon as appearing.
