Temp ride...

Just wondering what type of weather/temperature do you guys like to ride in. When it's cold, warm, hot or whatever? I for some reason like to ride when it's hot...I seem to perform better. I hate riding in the cold...the coldness does nothing for me.

Love to ride when its warm enough for a tshirt. Being scotland that happens about twice a year If its too cold its not fun either. 25deg with no wind is perfect.

In the winter ,I don't go ride when the temp is below 50 degrees or the sustained wind is over 20 mph . This past winter , my rule of thumb gave me 4-5 days off the bike a month . My summer rides start before dawn and end before noon . During the summer the daytime high temp can hit near 120 degrees . UAEbiker , you would feel at home here .

I like riding in hot weather (25-30 degrees Celcius). Some people call me a freak but I like being in a tshirt and shorts. I don't like riding in the rain or on a muddy trail but will ride even if it's cold outside (5 degrees C maybe?).
