I'm the same way, so far this year.
After riding below freezing for several months this winter for the first time, you could say I've been spoiled by not having to deal with heat. So far this year, my answer has been to ride earlier & earlier in the morning when it is the coolest. Most of my rides are done by 9am lately, with some rides getting home by 6am when I knew it would be hot. I don't think I've even ridden in 80F yet this year.
I am really being a wimp about the heat. I remember just last summer thinking that 80F is perfect cycling weather and it made me sick to ride in 50F. Now I'm completely opposite. Granted, I've got a stockpile of clothes for every temp down to 10F, but I can't believe how much my mindset has changed. Hopefully I won't get many days this summer where the temp doesn't dip below 80F at night.
