Utility cycling to run my errands often has me out riding in the hottest part of the day (95-100 F and 80% humidity). I seem to stay dry as long as I'm moving, but when I go into something like a bank or office and have to deal with other people I'd prefer not to look like a horse that's been ridden hard and put away wet.
I think the sweat issue is manageable for commuters who arrive at work after riding in a relatively cool part of the day. For commuters returning home and recreational riders, sweating doesn't matter much, I guess.
If a person is really in great cycling condition, how long does it take to cool off after going inside?
After a good soapy shower, how long does it take before sweat starts to noticeably stink? A good shower gets me through an evening of swing dancing just fine (4-5 hours). Dancing, you can always check to see whether the shower's worn off by looking at your partners' faces, ha. But I don't really know how well my 4-5 hour rule of thumb holds up for cycling in 100 F heat.
So I was wondering what thoughts & observations you have about this issue.
