Living in Oklahoma in the Summer months always means lots of heat. This year the hot, humid weather came early and has been relentless with blistering heat over 100 degrees for the last couple of weeks. On the bike, that can mean temps of 105+. If you aren't prepared it can be bad news so you have to get creative on planning routes with areas of shade, planning strategic stops at convenient stores, and even knowing where the grass waterers live so you can sneak a fly by mini shower (they are few and far between in the country!). After months of preparing for long rides in the heat, the indoor air conditioning makes me cold now!
How to Bike Ride in the Heat
Be Safe and Stay Fit
or iced water effectively cools the body.
The nearly mile high Blue Ridge Parkway offers a welcome respite from southern Appalachia's hothouse climate. Make the 1,500 foot ascent from the town of Blowing Rock and reap just rewards: cool winds blowing across the granite face of Grandfather Mountain and swoopy curves on the Linn Cove Viaduct, an elevated bridge flanking the craggy 5,946 foot peak. Local guide Darrell Prillaman says returning on the Douglas fir canopied Route 221 is like "riding an asphalt roller coaster."

Skip Miami's smothering humidity by spinning up the cooling Atlantic coast along the Venetian Causeway. Stop at one of the island parks along the way to take in Biscayne Bay breezes, ocean views, and occasional manatee sightings. Follow Washington Avenue through South Beach to South Pointe Park, where locals tan atop grassy hills. Then, head north on Route A1A to popular (and clothing optional) Haulover Beach for a midride dip.
THERE'S A LOT TO LOVE about riding during the warmest months of the year: the scent of fresh cut grass, tunnels of green engulfing country roads, seemingly endless daylight. But summer does have its drawbacks. A 2011 study published in the journal Experimental Physiology found that cyclists riding a 40k time trial were nearly five minutes slower in 95 degree heat than they were in a more comfortable 68 degrees.
happy with is a white head cap for under my helmet (I'm a baldy). It not only saves me from having to use sunblock on my cabeza (which then drips into my eyes when I sweat) but also acts to absorb sweat. The other gear I use is a long sleeve UPF50 jersey from Pearl Izumi. It was well worth the savings from the amount of sunblock I used to go through. At least in dry climates I find that it breathes quite well and does not trap in heat.
3. Heat injuries are caused by heat. They are prevented by minimizing heat gain and cooling. A significant heat contributor is workload, so in hot, especially humid weather, modify your pace and take more frequent breaks. Forearm cooling is also effective.

There's no need for you, or your rides, to suffer because of high temps. From routes that harness nature's cooling resources swimming holes, ocean breezes products and tips that ease the effects of a hot day, here's how to stop a searing sun from slowing you down this season.
2. Humidity may decrease by day's end in drier climates, but I doubt if it will in humid climates.
Here in northern New Mexico we have plenty of 90+ F summer days but without the rest of the humidity most of you suffer. For me sunlight is as great a threat as heat buildup. Two things I've started using this summer that I've been Nike Roshe Mens Slip On

5. Event organizers should always be prepared to immediately cool a a heat injury. Iced sheets, kiddie pool, etc.
1. Roads are 50 degrees hotter and retain that heat longer than surrounding terrain (NASA).
The route Paul Revere once galloped, warning of advancing British troops, lives on today as the Minuteman Bikeway, a rail to trail conversion sheltered by old growth maple, oak, and spruce. Pick up the historic path in Arlington, where it's paved, then detour on Battle Road Trail (through Minute Man National Historic Park) to reach Concord. Take a dip in Walden Pond, the muse of Henry Thoreau, then savor an ice cream from Rancatore's in Lexington before the mostly downhill ride home.

This was not a very helpful article. What if you bike commute? In Austin, Texas? In 105 degree plus temps? I can't dictate what time I ride. The morning is nice but the afternoon is brutal with the heat index around 110 or more. I get off work at the hottest part of the day. This has been a record breaking summer here with more days above 100 and 105 than ever before. 95, really? I laugh and play when it's 95. I wish it were 95. Let's see some tips for 105 plus.
