Does anyone bike in this heat?

I do, but not today.
Might test out the discs in the rain and mud!

"Heat" is relative. I like cycling when it's 90F+, but that's just what I'm used to.

I love it too, but it sucks when you're lost downtown with one 1/2L bottle of water. For 4 Hours.

Heat? We really haven't had any yet, pretty unsual for Kansas.

I do! Year Round (course this weather beats me up faster). My clothes that I wore in this morning are still damp from the sweat.

hehe, luv looking like a "Gaterade" commercial ...

Mid 90's, 15mph wind, 46% humidity at the moment, and expecting thunderstorms for the commute home (which at that time will be MOST welcomed!)

Yup, this week has been brutal by Rochester standards. Good times all around, I was soaked in sweat by the time I was out of my work parking lot on the ride home yesterday.

No heat so far this year. We should be pushing 100 by now but we've been having highs in the 70s and low 80s. I don't think we've broken 90 more than three or four times. We also broke the record for January-June rainfall today.

Feel free to send some of that rain this way. We're 13 inches below normal so far this year.

I hated it in FL when it was 98F and muggy. I used to wait until about 2 or 3 hours before sunset (depending on how long I planned to ride). That way the ride started out hot, but got cooler as I went instead of hotter.

Yes, Monday I rode almost 10mi with some tires on my shoulders (went to the LBS to get some new rubber).

Weather rarely stops me....the internets on the other hand....they might
