No hot weather in NY this summer

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Not yet. Highest temp in Chester forecast through July 18 is 82ºF. At least it's not raining. Today.

And my A/C bills are going to be way lower. But I do like riding in the hot weather. Oh well.

I suspect the Earth is cooling so we should expect the cycling season to shorten.

Feeling no sympathy at all. I went from a Canadian winter right into an Australian winter. Skipped summer all together.

The lower AC bills should enable us to buy more cycle gadgets.

It's been in the 90s for most of the last week here, and the same is predicted for the next week, except for a day or two down to the upper 80s.

I'm actually cycling occasionally now, too!

This is my kind of riding weather! The hot weather can stay away and I won't miss it, especially the heat AND humidity. Upper 70s to lower 80s is perfect for me; the other morning it was 58 when I rolled out and it was perfect.

The Mt. Redoubt eruption is to blame for the soggy low front weather in the northeastern US this summer. Expect an odd fall and winter as well. While not as dramatic as Mt. St. Helens, the eruption released a crapload of debris into the atmosphere (and more sulfer and carbon than by humans in the last 100 years you "greenies").

Last time there was an eruption this big Europe didn't have a summer.

I'll take mediocre dry weather over the rain we were getting over the past month or 2.

Atleast you guys have AC.

I'm living in a modded attic and it gets hot as bawls in here when it's hot outside. I'm stoked that it hasn't gotten into triple digits at all in the summer. It would be unbearable in here.

Atleast the rent is nice!

Very mild So Cal summer so far. I'd call it perfect. It's very rare to have such a mild summer here. The spring temps were below average as well.

I always think it's funny that some people think that the earth is supposed to be a certain way, and humans are just messing it up. Then something like this happens!

The correct term now is "Climate Change" which is a stroke of brilliance since it covers any and all pertubations in the climate.

But, this weather has been perfect (now that monsoon season is over). Unfortunately, I haven't taken full advantage of it. Waiting for an appliance repair tech and then I'm off for a 40 miler this morning.

Yup! I love milder summer temps! I actually wore my jacket yesterday for my morning ride - nice cool weather! As long as it's not raining, I'll take it!

When I left for work this morning at 6 am... it was 47 degrees.

I like to bike into work sometimes, and I'll do it in the 40's in early May. That's fine. But 47 in July? This is coming from a cold weather guy, but that's ridiculous. On principle alone I refuse to ride to work in July if it requires tights, shoe covers, warm gloves, head band and a jacket.
