When To Ride In Summer

In the hot summer, try not to choose to ride under the hot sun, and avoid the period when the sun is the largest around noon. You can choose to ride in the morning. At that time, there are fewer outdoor cars and fewer people, the air is fresh, the temperature is suitable, and the light is milder than noon, which is a good time for summer riding. Some cyclists will say that they need to work and donít have time in the morning, so choose the dusk time after get off work, or you can wait until after dinner, when the sky is getting dark and the night is on, this is also a good choice. After a tiring day, the sun also went to rest. At this time, the riding just avoided the damage to the body from the scorching sun. However, it should be noted that when riding at night, riders must check whether the lights are normal and use reflective equipment to improve the safety of riding.

Morning. The hotter it's gonna be, the earlier I leave, sometimes at sun up. After that, my day is made and nothing can interupt my ride/time for myself.

The OP does not consider that morning and evening rides include going to and from work.

As for midday rides, which I do, there's another thread about how to stay cool and hydrated.

You should ride at times when a website is getting too much traffic and then come back at lower time and check out that website and buy lots of product.

The best rides are summer eveninga when the air temperature is about 80-84F with low humidity, and the moving breezes feel good, after a day in the sun, Perfect shorts and t-shirt weather.

For some reason I read all threads started by AOSTIRMOTOR as though they are being narrated as 'Deep Thoughts' by Jack Handy. However, these posts are usually not as humorous as the aforementioned 'Deep Thoughts', unfortunately .
